R.I.P. Duncan (my brother)

Jill B

The roaming Aussie
He passed peacefully early this evening with a lot of our family around him, but I am still having problems accepting that he is not here any more, even though we all watched the funeral directors wrap him and take him away.
A wicked waste.............. his heart was still strong, but the brain tumours ruled in the end. I am numb; my mum seems to be coping better than me, but tomorrow might be worse.

I have to give big thanks to Duncan's DW Lyn for looking after him so well at home so he didn't have to die in a hospital.
Also, the district nurses who visited most days for an hour to give Lyn support.

Now Lyn will arrange the funeral with family input.
Bummer, what a waste, as I already said. Still surreal.

Jill, I lost one of my brothers and know the heartache. Please accept my deepest sympathies and pass them on to your mum, Lyn, Rick and other family members. You should be very proud of Duncan for putting up such a good fight to beat this horrible disease. May he rest in peace and may you someday find comfort. HUGS.

Jill, Rick, Mum;

Our deepest and most sincers condolances on your loss. From what you've posted, Duncan sounds like tha kind of person I would love to meet. Perhaps, someday I will have that distinct honor. Thank you for having shared a portion of his life with all of us. As you are, I am thankful that his passing was quick, and his pain was (hopefully) minimized. I will always remember him. May God Bless you all ...

So sorry for your loss. From your previous posts it sounds like he put up a good fight but now he can rest in peace. When my mother died from cancer I didn't want to let her go but on the other hand I wanted her to go because she was suffering. Even though we knew it was coming, it was still over whelming when it actually happened. Condolences to you & your entire family.

Jill, Mum, Rick and the rest of the Family,

We are so sorry to hear of Duncan's passing, but as others have said, his pain and suffering is over.

Today, you think about special moments with him and you cry. I pray that in the coming days, you'll think of those same moments and smile.

Oh Jill, I am so sorry that your brother has passed.

I know how difficult it is to embrace the idea that someone who has been in your life so long, and that you have a lifetime of memories with, is no longer there. Sometimes our hearts take longer then our minds do.

Hugs for you and Rick and your mum. I can't imagine how her heart is tearing....
