We finish our lives and surrender to death- The Handyman Rhyme

I write with sadness. My dear Brother-In-Law Poco has died. He knew he was nearing the end; never mentioned it. He had wanted to go the brewery his final day to toast his brother, my husband who died the same day, 25 years earlier. He didn't have the strength. I was thrilled to have reconnected with him almost two years ago and so grateful. Sharing what had been too painful for either of us to express.
Sharing what needed to be. The two are together now as they belong. I love you Poco................

So sorry Helen. I hope the passing of time and the memories of his life have helped heal the hurt.

Good to see you at Avi's blog, although for a completely awful reason.
