When I read about others I often feel guilty because I had my brother longer than most of you. When he was dying my niece made a statement about her parents (my brother & wife) being together over 40 yrs. I wanted to scream that I had him for 62 yrs., doesn't that count?? But then I feel guilty because he did leave a wife, 2 children and 2 grandchildren and their pain is suppose to be more. This evenings news was entirely about children and teenagers dying from accidents, murder, flu and unknown reasons. Four teenagers died last night in a car accident. This evening 4 others almost died while sitting at the memorial site of the dead teenagers when a car almost ran them over. Then I feel guilty that I'm grieving my brother who had a full life. Two years ago my girlfriend lost her 28 year old daughter to an accident. I feel guilty because she deserves to grieve so much more. Herbie was 67, it shouldn't hurt like it does.
