My brother, Jack, 25, Passed two days ago. He loved my bacon. This pound is for you bro. It’s cooked just how you like it. Rest easy.

  1. That’s my brother. He touched so many people. It’s amazing you saw this. He was an amazing fornite player.

  2. I'm so sorry for your loss. I'm curious, how'd you learn he passed? I often worry in this crazy world how we'd know if one of our online friends just stopped logging on since we're not in the same cities.

  3. Hey man. I’m really sorry to hear about your brother. Mine passed in March 2020, unexpectedly and young. I know how much losing a sibling can really turn your entire world upside down. Carry his memory with you everywhere you go. I’m not going to tell you it gets easier, but it certainly gets less jarring. Sending hugs and healing vibes your way ❤️

  4. I’m sorry for your loss. My youngish brother passed away 4 and a half years ago suddenly in an accident. I do think it does get easier. But it still stings, when certain things trigger memories. It can randomly take me out for hours, or a day, or just a few minutes, but those jarring moments that you mentioned start having less frequency.

  5. Very well put, I lost my younger brother July 2019. It’s tough, people give all sorts of unwanted advice that makes you want to smack them, but you nailed it. It doesn’t get easier but as time goes on it becomes less heavy. Gotta feel how you’re feeling in the moment and take it one day at a time. It’s a terrible club to be in but don’t hesitate to reach out to those who’ve been thru it. Hope you find some peace and healing.

  6. “Death is nothing at all. It does not count. I have only slipped away into the next room. Nothing has happened. Everything remains exactly as it was. I am I, and you are you, and the old life that we lived so fondly together is untouched, unchanged. Whatever we were to each other, that we are still. Call me by the old familiar name. Speak of me in the easy way which you always used. Put no difference into your tone. Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow. Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes that we enjoyed together. Play, smile, think of me, pray for me. Let my name be ever the household word that it always was. Let it be spoken without an effort, without the ghost of a shadow upon it. Life means all that it ever meant. It is the same as it ever was. There is absolute and unbroken continuity. What is this death but a negligible accident? Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight? I am but waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near, just round the corner. All is well. Nothing is hurt; nothing is lost. One brief moment and all will be as it was before. How we shall laugh at the trouble of parting when we meet again!”

  7. You can't imagine in how many ways this simple comment on Reddit has touched and possibly even helped me. Thank you

  8. Hey OP, I'm in exactly the same situation as you right now. My 23 year old brother died suddenly a couple of days ago too. I know how you and your family are feeling and hope you're all doing alright. It's like the world has just ended and you're stuck in some bizarre nightmare that never ends. Always remember it's OK to cry whenever you need to. My condolences to your family and good luck. Giving you all a big hug from Australia.

  9. Lost my brother a few years ago. We were 16 months apart and had never known life without him there just 1 step ahead of me all the time. It's hard. It doesn't really get any easier, honestly. The hardest part is the anger over what you'll never have again. The conversations you or things you would do together, like you said. It's hard to have something so important in your life be completely out of your control. Most things you can influence in some way, but not death.

  10. I’m sorry for you loss, but you’re brother sounds like a wonderful man and those who knew him were lucky, and I bet he was a great brother. I hope you’re doing ok. ❤️

  11. When my farmer grandad passed instead of soil I put a single short piece of baler twine in with him, he held the world together with that stuff. It’s the little thoughtful touches that really do mean the most to the people around you and help make you all stronger as you come to terms with things. I’m very sorry for your loss, may Jack rest in peace. Stay strong my friend and keep fighting the good fight x

  12. As a farmer, Baler Twine is the greatest tool, from wells to semi's, there is nothing twine and duct tape won't fix 🥰 your grand dad must have been an amazingly capable person

  13. Sorry for your loss . Are you sure you did t cut some unions with the bacon because I am crying. Stay strong. Safe travels Jack.

  14. I lost a brother to cancer last year. He was 31. Make sure you take time to grieve, and consider antidepressants. It comes in waves, and my depression hit me once I stopped being so busy with life. Losing a brother is so hard, I’m thinking about you. And now I want some bacon.

  15. This post is really close to home for me. My little brother Jack passed away 5 years ago on January 25th. He was 22. I hope it gets easier for you.

  17. Stay strong brother. Jack is in a better place now. I know it’s hard but it will get easy day by day. You got this. God bless ❤️

  18. I’m so sorry. I’ve got a 25 year old brother too and feel a weight in my chest just thinking about loosing him. I hope you find Shalom. He has.

  19. Sorry for your loss bro if you need someone to talk to . I’m here / a stranger with no judgment against you and will never tell a soul anything because I don’t know you

  20. Some of us have a slightly different take on how we remember loved ones. For his brother it may just be the bacon he made while remembering him, that made him smile now that he’s gone. For example for me I‘d always quote the ‚things my grandpa always used to say‘, that make me smile, even laugh. Usually only my cousins and me understand those. If we do that with other people around, usually no one gets why we started laughing and if we try to explain… let’s just say, most people don’t understand those in jokes.

  21. I thought the same thing because of how potentially ironic it is. Looking through this Texan's posts though, it's clear he loves crown vics, king of the hill, his cats, and bacon. What can you do...

  22. May the light shine on your brother. May he shelter in the palm of the creator’s hand, and the embrace of the mother welcome him home.

  23. I just wanted to keep cooking, hoping that eventually his door would open. I could always count on a family gathering when I’m cooking bacon.

  24. My partner passed away late last year. I don’t eat bacon but this made me smile because he liked his bacon like that too. I’ve been really missing him lately. So sorry for your loss, I hope your heart heals soon.

  25. Thank you, and I hope your heart can heal too. Losing my significant other is my literal biggest fear. Eat some bacon and smile knowing he is up there eating it with you.

  26. So sorry for your loss. I lost my brother a little over 4 years ago now. It helps to think of the good memories….that helps bring a smile to my face.

  27. Condolences. Funny enough i don't normally buy bacon but i did yesterday, to make today, which i just ate before reading this post! Happy bacon day everyone!!!! Go celebrate with some bacon and think of Jack!!

  28. I’m sure he’s smiling right back at you from the clouds, dude. :) That bacon looks awesome, I can see why he loved it!

  29. Made me tear up. My brother is also 25, and I can't imagine. I'm sorry for your loss. If I were there I'd help you eat all your bacon and listen to stories about your brother!

  30. I am so sorry for your loss. I envy the love and the relationship (the little that I know of it) that you have had with your brother. I wish I had the same with mine.
