It hurts. Its excruciating. Its painful beyond words.

My youngest brother, my wife, and I are very close. Out of everyone in our immediate family, he is our support, safety net and rock. Always there to protect me.

He sacrificed so much in his life, and he shared with us the pain he was going through. The pain that he could not talk to anyone else about. The pain that no-one else would understand. Those were his battles that he was fighting and we were with him all the way.

We really understood each other so well, that sometimes we did not even have to speak to know what was going on in our minds.

I was looking so forward to this week because we were going to go eat-out and spend some quality time together, just the three of us...

and then it hit like tons of bricks......

I got the news on Sunday afternoon, that a sudden heart attack took his life.. as he watching TV at my parent's place...

So quick, I had no chance of saying goodbye...

I would do anything to get that one last hug or caring smile.

How do I pick up the pieces?

It's so tough, and I am wondering if it will ever get easier...

Make sure you spend as much time as you can with your loved ones. We are on borrowed time and any hour could be our last...

I am so sorry for your loss. Though the pain never really goes away, it sounds like you have a lot of memories to help you through the days and weeks and months ahead. It's not fair that he left you so early, but we both know life is rarely fair. Hugs.

You are right, life is not fair. And it makes me both angry and sad at the same time. As you said, those memories are what I need to hold on to, during this time. It's tough, but it's all that I can do.

Man I know this is hard I know it. When I was 15 I found my grandmother laying nearly dead in my bedroom. I saved her life by being quick and covering her wrists but she eventually died a week later. This really crushed me and I my emotions were everywhere between hating and loving her. It is tough but you have to keep pushing forward and keep the good memories alive because they still live on through you.

My condolences to you and thank you for sharing with me that incident of your grandmom.

You are most certainly right, it's really hard and the tough part is to push forward. I just left all my WA on standstill.

This is the only blog that I wrote. And I know that he wants me to live my life and make it a success, so very soon I will have to jump back on that WA wagon.

Your words helped me so much.

Roopesh, oh man, I am so sorry for your loss. You are absolutely right, "make sure you spend as much time as you can with your loved ones. We are on borrowed time" Yes, I hear you. No doubt about it. If I could turn back time, I would give you that hug and caring smile from your brother. God bless you, your parents, and all your loved ones. Rupert.

Rupert, the care in your words really comforted me. I appreciate it big time.
Thank You

I'm so sorry for your loss. Praying for peace and comfort for you and your family.

You are so right--we need to spend as much time with family as possible. I am always reminding my kids that we only have the moment that we are breathing at this very second. The future is not guaranteed.

May you find peace.

Absolutely Diane, the future is not certain. He never smoked, he went to the gym often. I guess when our Maker decides it time, its our time.

Thank you for your prayers.

We offer our heartfelt condolences. It is very tough indeed and no doubt you are still in shock. In time you will be able to take comfort in all your memories of time spent together. In time you will be able to think of those memories without the stabbing pain of separation that occurs in new grief. Be grateful it was quick and he didn't suffer as that would be excrutiating to watch.Embrace your grief for that is a true sugn of how much you cared. Give yourself time to heal and it will take time. We are here for you any time you need an ear.
