Default mourning....again

I am taking a moment from my family to tell you all, my internet family, that this morning I lost my brother Benjamin. He was only 40 years old. I loved him with all my heart.

I promise to you all, I will not give up on me in this horrid time, I know it sounds maybe a bit self centered in the light of losing my loving brother and it probable is, but I know my brother would want me to. He was diabetic, had high blood pressure and regular seizures (brittle when he had low blood sugar and most likely the reason for his death, though we are not sure yet) and he wanted to have surgery.

He was my biggest support and so very proud of me. I will miss him to no end.

Thank you for listening.

Angela
