"Because of Him" - My Brother Will Live Again~

My dear brother John was recently told that his cancer was back. It had metastasized into his spine and brain. He was given about 2 months to live. In actuality he only lived two more weeks. I feel so blessed that I was able to be with him and his loving family for a few days while he was still able to communicate.
 My husband, Roger, Brother John and Me~
Here is my brother John, his wife Gloria, his three daughters, wife Gloria 
and their precious grandchildren~
Within a few days, he slowly slipped into a coma  He passed away peacefully, early in the morning on a beautiful Sabbath Day. I felt so blessed to be here with his family. 
Grieving is hard work. Having been a hospice nurse for 7 years I am familiar with the grieving process. The emotions are difficult at times. I even had brief moments of anger because he is the last from my family. However, because of Him our Savior Jesus Christ I know he will live again and I know that I will see him again. I know that he is sealed to my parents and brother Mac. We are an eternal family. I know that #BecauseofHim my brother had a wonderful reunion in the spirit world with my sweet father, mother and brother along with many other relative that have gone before. 
This Easter is the time to share our thoughts on our beloved Savior Jesus Christ. Let's spread the hopeful and joy filled message of Jesus Christ~ 
Here you can find stories and videos on "The Meaning Of Easter".

My heart goes out to you and your family. It is always hard to see a loved one pass on even with the knowledge we have. So glad you were able to spend some time with him. May you all be blessed with peace and comfort. Nola

So sorry! And I firmly agree with you...the Savior makes this all bearable. But of course it still hurts and there will be sad feelings. I just want you to know how special you are! And I want you to know my thoughts are with you, dear friend! Melody

Aren't we fortunate to know what we know? I guess that's why it's so important for us to share it.

Sending hugs.

Love,
