I'm not sure how to handle this
My brother Randy passed from an alcoholic seizure this past Monday, the same day as his son Mathews birthday. I'm at a loss as how to comfort him and my mother.
It's sad to say, but Randy's life was basically a waste. He spent more time drugged, drunk or in prison that he did sober in his 45 years. he was unable to raise any of his kids and had his parental rights revoked where Matthew is concerned, for child endangerment.
His life is a series of sadness, violence and rejection, eventually leading to his alcoholism and drug addiction. He underwent every rehab that mom could afford, but it was all in vain. Randy's lifelong pain from his abusive father scarred him beyond understanding.
How can I bring words of comfort to his children? To our mother?
