My Youngest Brother Died During the Night/Early This Morning


Recommended Posts

Dear All,

I won't be on the board for a while.

I need to take some time to asbsorb this, but I was told this morning, Tuesday, July 1, 2008, that my youngest brother, Donald McCarthy, died during the night of a heart attack.

Apparently, although he was symptom free, and had regular medical exams, this occurred suddenly at age 62.

He leaves his loving wife of 15 years, Jane McCarthy, his two sisters, (Claire and I, and brother, John), and a multitude of nieces and nephews.

In shock.

Thank you Maryanne and Randy, and again, to All,

A chapter closed on Saturday, but the abrupt departure leaves a strange feeling of unfinished sentences.

Thank you each and everyone of you for your kind words and your understanding.

This support has been comforting and I do appreciate it very much.
