cindi o'h Posted October 12, 2004 Share Posted October 12, 2004 It was three years ago today that I lost my "little" bother, Johnny, to lung cancer. He was so very sick at diagnosis and had already defeated colon cancer two years before. The doctors were able to extend his life just a few more months which for me was a huge gift. I took Big John fishing every chance I got. We both loved to fish and were compatible fishing companions. Johnny left behind a young son, Jay, who was 4 years old when his daddy died. That was John's biggest sorrow about leaving this earth, "what about my boy?" Johnny was a sweet and gentle giant and I am grateful that we were able to spend some quality time together before he passed away. I slept on the floor of his hospital room, I gave him good back scratches, I held his head as he sobbed about his fears... I am thankful that I had the courage and maturity to stand beside him and hopefully help to ease his fears. Cindi o'h Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
