My BIL passed away.

He suffered for 5 months with liver failure. He died at home with my Sister by his bed & a Priest that happened to stop by. I'm numb. His burial will be delayed because of Christmas. I want to sign his memory book online provided by the funeral home but I can't find the words to express how I feel. Can you help me come up with something nice to say from my DH, me & the kids?

Thanks.

  • Actually... anything you write will be perfect. I know when my dad died that each one of those messages left on the online guest book was like a hug from him. It is important for his kids and wife to see how much he lived.

    Hugs! I am sorry for your loss.

  • Do you have any stories about him that you can share? I good memory can mean more than all the "I'm so sorry"s and "I'm praying for you"s in the world.

    The ONE thing I actually remember from my dad's memory book was a story I hadn't heard before, from one of my cousins. He wrote about how Dad visited their house one day after school and found there was no food in the icebox, so dad went and bought food for them. He was still in high school and working as a pressman in a laundry part time, but helping his sister and her family was more important than anything else he could have done with his earnings.

    What was special about your BIL and your family's life with him? Share it.
