  1. Tomorrow marks the 27th anniversary of my brother Tom's death. Back then it was the day after Thanksgiving not the day itself. Another brother just died October 1st of this year.

  4. My brother passed away on October 1st. I had spoken to him numerous times that week for which I am grateful. Handling his affairs kept me from avoiding the feelings of grief that have since come up clamoring for attention. They way this always happens is that something physical like sinus or stomach pain seems to come about. As soon as my brothers affairs started to settle is when the clamoring began.
