My Brother God Rest His Soul

my story is ....... one of my 6 brothers died in a lake ( drowned ) he was only 9 years old....very sad ..

when they brought his body out of the water it was black and swollen, 4 times bigger then its normal size, his beauitful snow white hair   ( tow headed as they say in the south) tossing  in the wind as the diver carried his limp body from the lake.... I could see his head bobbing up and down as the diver carried him towards the ambulance. 

my brother and I are the white haired, blonde children out of 8....the rest of my siblings have dish water blonde or brn hair. one has green eyes and one with brown colored eyes, all others have piercing blue eyes. 
ll never for get!  that incident has followed me all my life, i was only 15 when it happened .... odd thing is, my child was born on the same month and day  ( not year)  my brother past on...> may 28 

bitter sweet  it is ..........

when he past on, a piece of me died with him,  ill never be the same! NEVER!   I am afraid of losing my only child ..... my heart has harden, so sad.......

is your son a reincarnation of your brother? just a thought. he may still be with you through your son.

no my son is half Spanish, his hair and eye color are different than my brother, my son has hazels eyes with blk hair my brother had white blonde hair, with dark blue eyes.

my brother and I look a lot alike, we are the light ones in our family...

yes, I agree... my brother may still be with me through my son............
I was like a second mom to my brother who past on

My brother died on May 28th, 2010 in a pond in AK, the same day as my dad's birthday. What an extraordinary coincidence.

OMG GAVE ME CHILLS TO READ THIS ............... (((HuGS)))

So sorry for your loss xxx stay strong <3333

Thank you for sharing your tragic story. Heartbreak and loss are almost as common as love and connection. We need the later first, and may you, til the last, be left with love and connection.

Isn't that sort of the horror of life and love... that everyone you know or love will leave you or be left by you.

My thoughts are with you and my hopes for a longer than expected quality life are sent out to your brother.

girl, i understand what ur saying... there is a movie by stephen king ( i for get the name... where the guy never ages and everyone his age, has past on and he was left wondering why he was left to live on ...

Thanks gypsyblu!

Dear aniowagirl,
That's a pity! But at least, and wonderfully, you are alive :-)
