I was 16 years old when my brother died.

My brother was 5 years old at the time and died of natural causes.

Its very difficult for someone that young to comprehend the death of child.   Since then death has always been a part of my life.  Strange to say but true and I'm not sure why.  I've come to realize that some of it maybe telling me that its time to start living because life is short.

Sorry to hear it hon, I lost my half-bro when I was 8 and he was 12, so yea it's a lil' different, but still....<br />

I feel that. I don't know if my brother is alive, where he is, or anything. But I DO know that it's a good thing to live our lives as if we're grateful for having life! That's a really great tribute to your brother's memory, too. ;)
