Sad News

My Mom called this morning to tell me my younger brother died. I was in shock. They are going to do an autopsy, but we suspect it was a heart attack. I'm only 19 months older than him and we were always close. The deputy sheriff said that he was lying peacefully on his bed. When I was calling my other siblings I told them I had bad news and good news. After telling my oldest brother about the death, he said, "So what's the good news?" I said, "The good news is that he didn't die a slow painful death of cancer." Blessings to you. Enjoy your family while they're here.
