    I lost my brother John four years ago today at 1am after a four year battle with lung cancer. I prayed to die in his place. He was the type of brother that would help his little brother, me, before I asked. He was a kind man with a heart of gold.

    OT! That was a beautiful song for your beautiful brother. I know you must miss him!

    When we lose someone special, and when they are good people as well, it is a loss to ALL of us --- in the world.

    I have a wonderful brother and it is his birthday earlier today, 9/11. You reminded me to make sure I let him know how deeply cherished he is.

    I am sorry for your loss. You could honor him by being a rallying force against the scourge of tobacco smoking where you live. If you can save just one person from going through what you and your family went through you would turned your loss into into a positive thing for another family. If he is the man you said he is, I would think he would be proud of you for that. All of us will die. There is no escape from that. Try not to dwell on it. You can't bring him back but you save others from the same fate. May your brother rest in peace..
