My brother, Rob, called me at the end of August from an ER in Oregon. He told me he had gone in because of pain and exhaustion. The ER doc and Radiologist told him he had advanced metastatic cancer...and arrangements where being made to place him in Hospice. I booked a flight as soon as I could.
We had a few weeks with him as he traversed the last of his days on this earth. Rob passed in peace on September 7th at 3PM.
There is nothing I can write here which can adequately convey our sense of loss at his departure: beautiful man, loyal brother, loving father.
In a more lucid moment he said, "This is all about loving each other and working together, isn't it?" It was more of universal statement about life and not a question.
How entirely true ...
