Sun, 14 Dec 2014 08:53:14 EST Brother I just found out last night my brother in law and he is also a good friend is being sent home to die. His heart is only working at 14%. This man is one of the toughest men I know, but I can not tell her how many times he has been there for me over the years and the great memories we have had. I am glad I was able to talk to him a couple a days ago, even though it was a tough conversation, it ended with him crying and giving the phone to his wife. How do you say good bye???????????????
