A Sad Day for Me
My brother Anthony died yesterday at the age of 53. It was unexpected. He went into the hospital for a minor surgery and died on the operating table. The doctors think it was a massive heart attack. They won't know until after an autopsy. He had many health problems, especially with the heart. So that is most likely what it was. It was a very sad day, especially for my dad. My mother died in the year 2000 at the age of 67. My brother Larry died in 1997 at the age of 45. And, my sister Rita died in 2003 at the age of 53. Out of 6 children, there are 3 left. For parents, you are not suppose to survive your children, so this is very hard on my dad. I hope he can make it throught this. He was very close to my brother. After the hospital and mortuary, we went over to my dad's house and he begged me to take the family pictures off the wall. He couldn't look at them. Please pray for him.
