    Debbie, I am so very sorry you lost another brother. Life certainly isn’t fair, with some being made to sacrifice so much. You have had so many challenges and death given to you. I guess that means you are incredibly strong, since God only gives what we can bear.
    You’re in my prayers

    Again, my heart breaks. Going down memory lane and our childhood. Gone too soon. Prayers, hugs and lots of love for all the family.
