I went online and found my brother's obituary and his guest book. He had only one entry which I found strange as he had many friends.
I signed the guest book and someone else I knew also signed afterwards.
His name is Henry Joseph Chipman and lived in Santa Maria California.
I find many things odd as his wife's niece told me I didn't need to call or e-mail her anymore. It is like I was dismissed from his life. They had no children either.
He was cremated at his request, the niece said, and she didn't know what they would do with the ashes.
I do know he will have a new body and a new home. His last words to me which he could hardly utter were "I love you too, Irene". These words I will always treasure in my heart.
