Default How are you supposed to feel?

How are you supposed to feel when your only sibling of 50 years dies doing something he loved? My only brother drowned last Monday night in Lake Travis, Spicewood, Tx, while checking his trotlines, we were pretty close.
My brother was a DPS Trooper for twenty six years.
I don't know whether to be happy that he died a Christian and doing something he loved, or to be totally despondent.

I think that I will rejoice that he is in a better place.

I do love lurking about on this site. Thank all you guys and girls!

I am so sorry that your brother passed away. I will be keeping you and your whole family in my thoughts and prayers. The confusion of what you are feeling is normal so dont think otherwise our emotions run crazy when somethin like this happens and again I am very sorry for your loss.
I don't mind living in a man's world as long as I can be a woman in it.

Duke, our prayers go out to you and yours.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Duke, sounds like your brother was a heck of a guy, and the fact he passed doing something he loved wont make it hurt the family less but I'm sure he was happy. May the goof Lord bless you and your whole family and ease your pain. Again sorry for your loss, my thoughts and prayers go out to you in your time of need.

BEWARE!!! The toes you step on today may be connected to the ass you kiss tomorrow.

Please accept my condolences and my prayers for your and his families.
