Mourning My Brother

The entire time I was sitting with her, her tears didn’t stop flowing. She went through her brother’s pictures; remembering when they were taken, and crying bitterly for his loss. She wondered how her life will still have meaning after the loss of her brother. The news came as a shock to everyone, leaving them in denial and pain. This woman dedicates all her time now to easing the pain of her sister in law and of her brother’s children…there are very few people like this in our times! She told me, “I can’t say no to anything they ask of me, even if it comes at the expense of my own house.

I leave my home for hours to visit them; I talk to them and help them every day. I see in them my dear brother; they’re the only memory I have left of him. I pray to God not to take siblings away from each other.”
