This Monday I found out that my older brother passed away. I've cried a total of, well, I don't even know how many times this week. I'm crying now. I just feel like shit. The whole thing was completely unexpected. We waited days to find out why he died only to be told that they can't conclusively say why he died, but they think it was heart failure. He was dead for at least 10 days before someone finally found him. What kind of a way is that to go out? We probably won't even get to do an open coffin; which is what I wanted. I wanted to see him one last time.

He was so young. No one deserved the bullshity life that he had.

RIP Brother. I hope you're somewhere safe and happy and without the shit that made your so life hard. No more struggling. I'll see you again someday.

Sympathy to you

My sympathy goes out to you and your family for the loss of your loved one. Live gives us kicks sometimes and we don't know why. To loose a loved one like that for an unknown reason makes it all the harder on us.
Remember that no one is truly gone for they live forever in our memories of them. They live forever in our love for them. Remember the good times with your brother and he will live in you forever.
Blessed be. My sympathy to you and yours.

Genius is not a sign of intelligence, but rather
that of common sense. Humor is the best pain pill.

I appreciate your words

I'm definitely thinking of him. I just wish that life was better for him while he was here.

I'm really sorry.

That sounds really terrible.

I hope that your family and everyone at Oasis could help make you feel a little better!

RIP...that's horrible

RIP...that's horrible that you and your family have lost him. I can't imagine what you're going through, if I lost my little brother I don't know what I'd do.

You have my sympathies and I hope that your brother is somewhere safe and happy as well.

Just don't let yourself go through this alone. I imagine that this is when family comes together the most. I'm sure you have people around you who will help you however they can. And you'll honor your brother through your memories of him, just hold on to that.

I'm so sorry that this happened to you and your family.

Thank you

Though, I'm really bad at the "letting people help". I'm the type of person who doesn't really like to show emotion, especially crying. I prefer to deal with stuff alone. But, my family is around if I need them. Thanks again for your thoughts.

I guess...

That is so terrible. I really can't think of what else to say; just remember that you have everyone here on Oasis.

We're all be here for you.
