My Big Brother

I've been away a while. I don't think you put sad things on a blog. But I can't ignore what has happened and its effect on me.My lovely Big Brother sadly passed away last Friday. He had been in hospital for a few weeks, struggling to combat a disease that had struck twice before, it was similar to polio. I am posting some photos of him, and me, when we were young. He was 10 years older than me, and I think I tormented hm something rotten as a kid! I won't say anymore. I shall miss him, but he had really had enough of suffering.
I will add another post later on, when I feel something like. 


  1. I extend my sympathies for your loss... Never an easy thing to lose someone, and even harder when they have suffered too much first.
    The photos are really great, it looks like a happy family captured in them.
    For the record, i think it's perfectly acceptable to share sad moments as well as happy ones ~ it's "real" life after all, and real life isn't always sunshine and lollipops... so I say post whatever is right for you.
    Sympathies, Melody

  2. Thank-you Melody. people have been very kind. It is not an easy time. The photos make me smile, he was cute, with his little legs, mine are bigger than his in the photo. Like you say, it is real life, and you have to cope with the ups and downs of it. X
