A young girl, about seven years old, holding her infant brother. She has white skin and shoulder-length brown hair and is wearing a red plaid top. The baby is white with brown hair and big, brown eyes. He's wearing a long-sleeved white top with spots of different blue hues.

R.I.P. to My Little Brother

I haven’t talked about this publicly yet, but we lost my brother recently. He was diagnosed with stage four recto-colon cancer about 13 months before he died. He had the best treatment, but it wasn’t enough.

Please, get your colonoscopies on schedule!

Grief, I’ve learned, is really just love. It’s all the love you want to give, but cannot. All that unspent love gathers up in the corners of your eyes, the lump in your throat, and in that hollow part of your chest. Grief is just love with no place to go.

The pics are of us in early 1974.

We hadn’t been close in years, and we didn’t always get along (what siblings do?), but he was still my little brother. There is a hole in my heart now.
