I had plans to sew today - never happened. One of those days. My father passed away a year ago. Today my mom tried to reach her twin brother. They both love in NC near each other. I live in Michigan. He frequently doesn't answer the phone. She went over to check and found him - dead. My moms emotions were pretty raw because of her husband and now her twin brother. She's handling it pretty good. Except she keeps saying "if only" she had been there, if only she tried to call, check sooner. The medical examiner thinks he might have been dead since Saturday night or Sunday. My mom will find out tomorrow if there will have to be an autopsy. If anyone would like to pray for her, I (and she) would really appreciate it. Her name is Louise. My mom and I are both Christians so she would covet any prayers. She is also responsible for handling all his affairs, which is a tough job. Thank you!

I'm very sorry for your mom's and your loss. Losing a sibling is hard, but losing a twin is like losing a part of yourself. My husband's twin brother passed away suddenly in 2008. They had that special twin bond and it was a very difficult time for my husband. Praying for comfort and peace for both of you.

Oh I am so sorry for your Mom, what a heartbreaker. Sometimes bad stuff just happens but the guilt over what you could have, should have, might have done differently just eats at you. Even if in the back of your mind you know you shouldn't blame yourself you can't help it. This must be awfully hard on you too. I wish you the strength to get through it. We are all here for you.

Oh how sad. My mom was found by her brother and sister when she wasn't answering the phone. I was so sad because I was so far away,

I will keep you and mom in my thoughts.

My prayers are with all your family. My mom was a twin, and lost her brother. She said it was like losing an arm, even though they lived 700 miles apart.

Sorry for your losses. My dad's funeral was a year ago today.

It gets easier as time goes by - but you never get over someone whom you've loved so much. I know something of what you're going through, as my dad a year ago too. My thoughts and prayers are with you too.

I'm so sorry for your loss, and am praying for both you and Louise. May the Lord wrap you both in His loving embrace, and may you and she be acutely aware of His presence as you go forward. Love, hugs, and blessings to you,

I'm crap at knowing what to say in these situations. So I'll add my condolences to the rest, and pray for comfort and peace for you and your family.

Words can't express my gratitude for all your kind and comforting words. Oh, they mean so much to me and my family. I was waiting to update when I had something to update with. So far my mom hasn't gotten word of anything. She's been told nothing, so we wait. We're hopeful today we'll learn more and go from there. Again thank you; you are such treasures and the world needs more people like you! You're the best!
