My heartfelt sympathy at the loss of your sister, Nancy. You were an attentive brother. That, indeed, was a wonderful and selfless gift you gave her, especially of late. It was good that you were able to spend time with her recently. Although these next few days will be hard, you will be among family, and that can start the healing. God bless!
