    To tell me my younger brother passed away this morning.
    His mom found him laying on his floor this morning.
    He texted her and said he wasn't felling well and asked her to call him in the morning. and when he didn't answer she went over to his house to check on him.

    He had been diagnosed with juvenile diabetes at the age of 12.
    Having his toes and eventually both legs amputated over the last few years.
    But was living on his own paying his own bills and working full time with the loss of his limbs.
    I was supposed to spend next weekend fishing with him while on vacation.

    While he has had some kidney issues the last few months we are currently not sure the cause yet.

    Thanks guys..
    I'm in total shock right now and i don't know what to do.
    I'm stuck in Texas and they are in Ohio.
    I already have my flight booked for later this week to attend my other brothers wedding.

    How old was he? Listen I'm not a grief counselor by trade but maybe when you do make it to Ohio meet up with Gary and throw him in a dumpster just to make yourself feel a lil better. :hug:
