|Sad and very touching. I'm sorry for your loss... There are many who live that way , but I think perhaps for some , their life would be different if they could choose another path to walk on...M|

|Wow Linda, these words speak volumes...
"It hurts so much
That you were living this way
We'd somehow lost touch
As the years slipped away
A tired, homeless man
With no where to go
I'm so sorry, dear brother
But I didn't know...."
Yes, many of us just don't know. That is why I support a homeless ministry. Sometimes I will not know how to help them, but God does.
Peace, love and blessings,
John Michael Domino

|I am sure you are haunted with "what ifs". What if I had only...His pain was his to bear and until he was ready to share there was nothing you could do. I am sorry for your loss: not only of your brother but of the innocence of your childhood memories with him. Beautifully written. Keep writing, for us, and for yourself! Be well, be strong, Kathy|

|So sad. Made me think of my nephew, who stayed with me when he was thirteen and hid from me some destructive behavior. A good heavy equipment operator when he was sober, he got very abusive to his mother, my sister, and has been banished from the family. He may very well be on the street like your brother Jimmy.

|Aw! This is heartwrenching, Linda....I had a brother like that....rarely saw him...and then one day he was gone...console yourself with the fact you had no way of knowing he was in trouble...

|A wonderful tribute to your brother
He must have been a very strong soul
to survive. I am sure pride was in
the way of letting others know Linda.
All of us suffer from pride to a degree
Refusing to take help from another and
mostly family. For whatever our reasons
we never want to appear a failure in
the ability to take care of ourselves.
But as Karen said, there was a happy ending.
Love and Light
