My Brother

Thursday, December 27, 2012

First off I want to thank you for all your prayers and support for my brother and my family. I just wanted to let you know that my brother James lost his battle and is being taken off life support this evening. The doctors pronounced him brain dead around 7 p.m. and ask the family to make a decision on taking him off the respirator. James was 55 years old and my next to the youngest brother. He was mine and my sister's only surviving brother. This is a very hard time for us.

  I am so sorry and sad for your loss! I pray G*d comforts you. Read John 17. its where he says only Satan will be lost! I cant believe G*D would ever go back on his word and for me that says it all. May your brother rest in Jesus for he came to seek and save the lost! Our only Hope is in Christs words! susana

    I'm so sorry for your loss. You did the right thing. It's a hard decision to make; I had to make it with my mother. But that is no kind of life with the machines. I'm praying the Lord will comfort you and your sister.
