DH's cousin with cancer lost bis brother last weekend. Fell down the (few) steps leading to his front door. Broken skull. Dead immediately. 50 y/o. Kids.
That cousin lost his dad when he was 13. Then within short months his mother and sister when he was in his mind thirties. Now his remaining brother. All he could really say to us was: I cannot believe I'm the last one left now. It broke my heart.
Hes a lovely man. Thank goodness he's got his wife and their children and his extended family.
