Rural Thursday Blog Hop #37
My brother died Wednesday morning. My niece found him and called me. He had been a smoker all his life. He got real sick and was hospitalized over the summer, side effects from years of smoking. He was released and quit smoking that day. The damage had been done. He caught a cold over the weekend, and now he's gone. I wasn't sure if I should post this, but it's my day to day blog, filled with pictures and what life experiences I have so I felt kind of like I have to post this or I'd be cheating him somehow. I lost my mom earlier this year. She too was a heavy smoker all her life. If you smoke, please consider quitting. I've watched 2 family members die from smoking in less than a year and I can tell you that it's a miserable way to die. If not for yourself, then please stop for those that care about you. I know it's hard, but I can't imagine it being harder than all the pain and suffering you will experience from smoking...if not now...eventually....He was only 56.
