My brother died 3 years ago and it’s his birthday in 4 days, could anybody give me some quotes or words of comfort please.
I’m always a litte emotional this time of year but lately I’ve felt very numb, and it makes me feel like I’m forgetting him and that devastates me. I don’t really know how to feel right now, a couple of words of wisdom would be very helpful and appreciated. Thanks guys

In all honesty its not how long you live but how you live
It appears that you loved your brother very much so i can only assume that he was a good and decent person i am sure he had flaws we all do but its clear that you miss him and this could only be the case if you loved him.
So celebrate the person he was i am sure he would not want you hurting every time this year.
morn for the dead, fight for the living
You’re not forgetting him. If you’re thinking of him now, you’re definitely not forgetting him. He will always be in your heart and mind. Embrace it, he may no longer be with you physically, but he’ll always be there.
Heres one from one of my favorite songs:
I love you,
You were ready,
The pain is strong and urges rise,
But I’ll see you,
When it lets me,
Your pain is gone, your hands are untied.
We do not weep for the dead. We weep for the living. Go through life with nobility, and one day you will be freed from the sacred burden of life.
I lost my son 16 years ago. It is the most unnatural feeling for a man to have to bury his son, but sometimes God chooses one of His most beautiful flowers in His garden to have them closer to Him. There is no way to put into words the feelings you have when it happens to you. As Bkingk said, celebrate the time you had with him while he was here. I’m sure he wouldn’t want you to allow this to immoblize you. My prayers are with you and your family.
Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal.
- From a headstone in Ireland
Death is not extinguishing the light; it is only putting out the lamp because the dawn has come.
- Rabindranath Tagore
Those we love don’t go away,
They walk beside us every day,
Unseen, unheard, but always near,
Still loved, still missed and very dear.
Life and death are one thread, the same line viewed from different sides.
- Lao Tzu

My Brother died 3 years ago today and his birthday is in 4 days too…..i think of him everyday and just lately have felt the same as you, your just learning to accept his loss and dealing with it in a better way….thats how I feel. I will never forget him, I visit him every Sunday with flower’s for his grave and have a lil chat…It does give you comfort in a kinda way, my bruv alway’s told me to take care of myself so I am making his words come true ……… Tina
Only 3 weeks and I will be home to be with my family for a month, thinking of my brother and planning how am I going to spend my vacation with them and have him around. I wanted to talk to him to and ask him if he wants to visit me in dubai for a month as I know that he is not fir to work abroad due to his heart condition, but I guest I will never have a chance to do the promise I told him :-(
Till one early morning my phone was on silent but that very moment I woke up when the phone vibrate, my auntie called sounds nervous, panic, scared I couldn’t really explain but I can feel that the call is not a good news, till she start talking and told me not to panic and say’s that my mom advise them not to tell me that my brother passed away but she did it anyway’s. I paused for a seconds as I coudln’t really believe what she just said, it didn’t sink in to my head as I refused too. I just cry silently and hang up the phone, my tears never stop for hour and hours I just ******* accept it as in just a matter of weeks I will see him after 2 & half years. As I went home earlier than the plan I have in mind. I was able to see him for the last time but could no longer talk to him, or even hold him…
Today April 18 is his birthday and I just thought of sharing this to you guy’s to love your brother and share what ever you have while you still can. As I was not able to do that. I was late and sorry for the promise that I didn’t get a chance to let him experience.
May He rest & peace!!! My love for you my dear brother Marvin will remain forever, in my heart where no one can replace nor take that part away from me.
