Miss you already Mitch--

My brother passed away yesterday. It was, as you can imagine terribly unexpected---- well, maybe not totally unexpected just much sooner than anyone anticipated.

Mitch was a:
  • husband
  • father
  • brother
  • son
  • lover of every genre of music
  • avid concert goer
  • hard working and self-employed
  • ex-Marine
  • funny as hell in his wry humored way
  • a Republican who voted Democratic for the first time this election season
  • silly man who loved to argue with me about S*arah P*alin
  • argumentative cuss who enjoyed the sport of arguing for that alone
  • creative in his own right and always appreciative of my creative gifts
I'll miss you bro, rest in peace.

How devastating. My favorite quote about the loss of someone is from The Talmud.

“There are stars whose light only reaches the earth long after they have fallen apart. There are people whose remembrance gives light in this world, long after they have passed away. This light shines in our darkest nights on the road we must follow.”
