"Dear John"

I received a phone call Sunday morning saying that my brother John had passed away. My life being the confused, emotional mess it is I didn't listen to this call till Tuesday afternoon.

I really don't like phones.


I have no words. There are no words.

For me time has stopped.

This is an emotional event horizon. A moment without end. A place of no words, no emotion, no light.

I knew something was coming.

All these posts about the end of the world, and Mickey nailed to the wall.

Yeah something was on the way.

For an individual this is about as hard as it gets.

A sibling's death is worse than a parent's; blow that that is, one knows that the older generation will pass away. This cuts so much closer; your brother's mortality is your own.
Sid, you are in my thoughts and prayers as you cope with this.

Real, real sorry to hear that Sidney. I'd like to give you some words of comfort, but I know there are none for this. I'll be thinking of you.

I am so sorry for your loss and your hurt. Peace by with you, Sid.
