Thank you Scorpio. I appreciate your caring.

Today I received a call from my niece.The doctors have conferred again and my brother has had his first Chemo treatment. He thanked his family for helping him to make the decision to go for it. He is in much better spirits. They will now move him to a Rehabilitation  home for and I guess Hospice is or will be available if needed. He is anxious to take his Honda Goldwing on at least one last trip to California. So at least he is not preparing to die as he had been. Much better to hear his spirits are up for now. .  Oh, And my niece said he has been singing! Before he could hardly talk. Today he was  Singing Danny Boy with gusto!  No wonder we all all so confused!
Thank you all. And Jo, thanks again. martyjo

Just to let you know that after all the ups and downs and high hopes. My brother Carl, left us for better places on March 17th at one p.m. A quiet peaceful passing with his first son holding his hand and his first daughter singing softly to him. Thank you all for your caring and kind words. martyjo

I am so sorry for your loss, Martyjo...

I understand the hope that everyone had in trying with the Chemo and the positive feelings it gave Carl and everyone towards the end.

I wish you all peace and comfort in knowing his pain is over.

Martyjo, my heart sank when I read that your brother Carl had returned HOME. ~ A loss for those he left behind, but another star has been added to heaven's skies.

March 17 is also the date that my sister's son, Chad, along with 5 of his friends, disappeared on Lake Ontario in 1995. Their bodies have never been found.

Carl's suffering is now over but much healing is now needed for his loved ones that he has left behind. I send my love and healing hugs to all of you.

Love & Eternal Light,
Linda

I'm sorry for your loss, Martyjo. It's a mixed emotion time.  You're glad he's no longer suffering, yet knowing how much you'll miss him, hurts deeply.  God bless you and yours throughout your grieving process.

Linda, Maureen, Enchantress, Rae and all you who have been so kind, thank you for your caring selves. Carl is where he belongs now. He needed a rest after going through all those emotions. He had a chance to visit and talk to each of his five children. He even sang, over the telephone, with  four of his children with their mom and his oldest with him, their wedding song. That was a tear jerker but united them all once again.
With  sincere thanks to all of you great PIP poets, martyjo

MartyJo,
Dear, dear friend how saddened I am by your loss. Your strength and courage amaze me. I pray you find peace and hope. And as I have grown fond of saying:

If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane,
I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.
