That Sunday, that winter

January 4th 1981 was a Sunday. It was also the coldest day on record at minus 37 degrees celsius. 11 a.m. in the morning in the palliative care unit of the Royal Victoria Hospital. He died of leukemia in his 38th year and has been gone 34 years –almost as long as he lived. But I still feel the grueling cold of his death like it was yesterday. Because he was my only sibling, my beloved brother.

You always made us laugh and you will never, ever be forgotten.Rest in the peace of love, my dearest, Bill.
