Hi Spencer, first of all welcome to the site, you and your brothers have been through an absolutely horrendous time, you are not alone, there has been so many people in the same situation as you are, but that doesn’t help you or your family, there is no easy way of getting through this, you just need to take a day at a time, support each other, and hopefully in time it will become easier, you may find some sort of bereavement counselling would help, Sue Ryder do offer this service and so does Cruse, sending love Jude xx
