    Default THOSE WERE THE DAYS - Neil - February 14, 2011

    THOSE WERE THE DAYS

    As time passes we begin to lose contact with our past. This last week I was reminded how quickly time slips away.

    His name was Robert Harry Travis. Born in 1928 he was the second son born to my parents.

    You have my sympathies. Losing a loved one gives us time to reflect on the good times gone past...cherish them.

    Neil:

    Coming to terms with the death of a sibling or other family members is difficult.

    I have have lost my grandparents, aunts & uncles, cousins, so I know the hurt and difficulties that arise with the death of a family member.

    I am the middle boy of three sons my parents raised, all of us are five years apart in age, and really never had much to do with each other our whole lives. I just had my 62nd birthday on February 9th, wow where did the time go to, it seems only yesterday when I was in my 30's.

    Now my older brother (John) has had a stroke, and he does not have much time left.... he is my brother, but over the years we became strangers....

    So in a way I am going through what you have gone through with the death of your brother. My prayers are with you and all your family....
