My Brother A Hero To Me

At the start of last week my brother Marshall (Larry) went in for
unrelated incident and when tested had a huge cancer tumor. They were
going to operate but decided his lungs would not hold up as they were
already damaged. Somewhere along the way between blood thinners and
not he had a stroke which took out his speech abilities. Prognosis not
being good for surviving surgery and what not, at his wish, we brought
him home, where he is being made comfortable. His grandkids and
immediate family are all here and we’re all deeply grateful for your
many prayers. Things happen so quickly we forget how cherished each
moment is. My thanks and hugs to all.

Sadly around 11:00 PM 6/4 he passed away. I’m really sad and
heartbroken at my brothers loss.

Marshall, you were my idle growing up. The brotherly love was always felt. Even when it hurt. 🙂
It was just you, me and mom for the longest time and that always created a special bond between us. Being the big brother wasn’t always easy but you were there nevertheless. Mom would say, Larry take your brother as it was often herd and it made you mad sometimes but there I was.

I’m such an introvert that I grew into my little world and you were trying to get me out of that space. You knew that and told me the many texts, phone calls and postings will never replace face to face or personal communications. But, that’s what things were the past couple of months.

I’m the eldest of the family now, but, I don’t think I’ll ever fit those big shoes of yours. All, I can try and do is place family first and do the best I can to be as generous and giving as you were. All my love and my heartbroken self, thanks for all you were. Whom am I now going to call for sage advice…

My Brother My Hero

I found this Marine Poem on the internet, while it may not say everything I does say you.

“So you took a different path
one that is more true
not the path that makes this easy
but the one less traveled through

the war was big
at times was rough
the battles we fought
the world may judge
but even though
they’ll never know
the world will always thank you

rest in peace
because your loved
dream good dreams
your days were tough
rest your mind
you fought enough

0h brothers, how we’ll miss you!

I promise that I will never forget
the things that you have done
even when i find myself
no longer with my gun

and please forgive my hidden feelings
my body tends to hide
they’re trapped inside this awful prison
enslaved by my pride

and never again will i say
my pay grade can out rank you
because you got to heaven first
and I’m on earth beneath you

so till the day we meet again
and my life on earth is through
guard those gates of heaven
until i can relieve you

until then…
oh brothers, how we’ll miss you! ”
