I just got a call from my father that my brother's father past away. We have the same mother...different fathers. I just finished telling my brother and he is taking it pretty well so far. They hadn't spoken in a while and my brother was just last week saying that he was thinking he should drive up and see him. Now I think that he feels regretful that he never got there. The news came right in the middle of dinner. Needles to say he's got a lot of different emotions going on right now. It's been a tough winter for both of us...but my brother really didn't need this right now.
Anyway...I'm just venting a bit. I knew his father too, and he was always a nice guy from my experiences. It kinda' awkward since we grew up separately and had different fathers. I'm usually not at a loss for words...but in this situation, I'm not sure what to say to him.
