Brother

JP's parents with his 2 oldest brothers, J (baby) and D (toddler)
 
We received the sad news today that JP's oldest brother suffered a severe bleed in his brain following a fall this morning, and has just been taken off life support.


It was an incredible shock, and we are all still trying to process it.

D was 18 years older than JP, and was long out of the house by the time I came along, but I felt accepted and felt loved by all of JP's siblings on meeting them.  I found D especially to be an extremely gentle, quiet, and unassuming man.  He and his wife always seemed to have smiles on their faces.

JP & D
 
I have great memories of a weekend that D, his wife and youngest son spent at our home when J was small.  He was always so very appreciative of everything we did or cooked for him!

 
We will miss you so very much, D.
