    Please pray for my family.

    My brother Jon had a massive heart attack on Sunday. So massive and with no phone I only found out today through an amazing facebook search by a nurse. We had dinner after the UGA game and watched the end of the Miami game at a restaurant. He had a great time and we hugged each other and promised to call as always.

    Many times I do not hear from him for a day or two. As I was wondering today, the nurse found me. Once again I am called to be the Grim Reaper in my family. Jon is on life support but is only waiting for his poor 18 year old daughter to come from Charleston to pull the plug. I will walk her through it and if she can pass it to me, I will take it.

    I have buried granparents and parents. This is the first sibling. I am working on the eulogy now. I have done my grieving so I can be there for the rest of my family. I seem to be at the numb stage now. Please pray for the rest of my family. It is hurting them very bad. It is not easy being the strong one, but I have no choice. So I am asking for prayers and also preparing those who are younger than me for the strange trip that you may one day have to travel. And I pray for you when you do.

    God Bless, Cuz.

    Prayers for you buddy. Unfortunately, I know all too well what it's like. I lost my sister back in 2005. She was 38 and I was 36. She passed away about midnight, as judged by the coroner, and my nieces found her at about 10 AM on Easter Sunday. My oldest sister died before I was born at 18 months old.

    No me and a fraternity brother at a party in 82 or 83. My brother would have been 10 or 11 at the time.

    Thank you all for the prayers and kind words. We are keeping him on life support hoping that God will come and take him so he can donate his organs to patients needing them to live. If we pull the life support, the organs will die before he does and very little can be done to help others. A few more days and we will have to make the decision ourselves.
