Valentines Day Massacre

My brother died yesterday. On Valentines Day. Aged 31. I think that is young.

I think and feel that I am upset.

A lot.

I have to grieve.

It's all over the news.

ITV and BBC. And wherever else.

I kissed his picture.

I'm deranged and irregular.

My love for him is strong and deep. Not caring about anything else but beauty.

Beauty and grief go hand in hand maybe?

My sympathies... There's nothing anyone can really say to asuage a feeling of loss but my thoughts are with you.

31 is young -younger than me- but Hodgkin's Lymphoma is not nice and often hits the young. A friend of my family got struck with it aged 16. Not nice

Ditto with sympathies. Words can never do anything but make the giver feel better.

I can only add my sympathies. Don't worry about being a mess, it natural and right at a time like this.
