I've not spent much time on this forum recently, mainly due to ill health but my more recent absence is due to the death of my younger brother.
Lee was 64yrs when he died alone and the manner of his death was very unpleasant & upsetting as was the period leading up to his his death. He was one of those "could be something of a pain in the ass brothers on occasion but was always lovable despite 'whatever' " I can't elaborate at the moment but the police are involved and an autopsy is due to be carried out.
He was a lovable & thoughtful kinda guy and I remember him being just as nice even when he was far too young to start school, it's just such a horrible feeling when you've missed the chance to say a few words of comfort while the opportunity was there - even to say goodbye would have meant something.
I'll never be short of reminders of him as in the 1980's he'd planted trees and shrubs extensively in the grounds of the local hospital, they're all still there in their maturity and I'm frequently pointing the fruits of his labour out to all and sundry upon every one of my visits - always with great pride.
R.I.P. Dear Brother.
