    Robert, I was so sorry to hear about your brother. I cannot empathize, because my siblings are all here for me to talk to and see and hear and love. I do sympathize, however, because I know your pain is deep and you will miss him. Let me gently remind you…there is no more pain; no more sorrow; no more tears. There’s not even any hope or faith, for they have become sight!! Rest easy and have peace tonight. Bill lives. 😀
