BeckyCW Posted June 15, 2006 Share Posted June 15, 2006 Tomorrow, June 15th, will be a year since my little brother DavidC went to heaven. I'm trying very hard to focus on THAT and not on what was going on a year ago - all the pain and anguish - and not on the loss that I (and all of David's family and friends) feel every day. I try to think of funny things Dave would be telling us from heaven if we could only hear him. At church on Sunday, several hymns mentioned cherabim and seraphim -- and what popped into my mind was David chuckling and saying that now HE knows what they are. I remembered him standing at the front of that church and playing his trumpet as I walked down the aisle at my wedding, and I remembered how proud I was of him and how special that was. And for once I was able to smile some instead of just crying. I think he liked that. Not only did he have a great and well-known sense of humor -- he also hated to see people hurt and would do anything he could to help others see the good side of things. So I think he's doing that for me now. (He's probably been trying all year, but hasn't been getting through my thick head. That's another thing about my brother, though... He didn't know how to give up.) Thanks, everyone, for being there for him and his family, and for being there for so many people. If you have a chance today, please raise a glass or light a candle for a great man -- a brother, son, husband, father and friend who crammed a lot of life into 40 years. Thank you, BeckyCW Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
