  1. My nephew passed August 22,2017 , and his parents had been divorced, which my brother remarried and she handled most of the funeral we couldn’t. I never had children of my own I lived my life through my 2 nephews Dusty and Ryne. Ryne struggled with drugs off and on, but I always had the open door for him. I blamed my sister in law for leaving after 30 years of marriage I know this is not why, but I question so many things about what IF, she was in my family for 30 years they dated from the time I was only 4 years old so I lost a sister. He is a business man in the oil field and it is black and white with him, he is straight forward and I feel like he has pushed all of his family away, parents, myself and even my other brother and Dusty his first born. He is such a wonderful person I love my brother always and measure so many people to him he is handsome, rodeoed, strong, loving and kind in his own way… but I hurt for him and Tammy my sister in law, I hated for so long but I have moved on. Our mom had kidney cancer last April removed, then left arm bone cancer and now it is on her left arm once more and her tailbone and lungs, he barks orders at me all the time about what the doctor should do, but I really think he wants to be prepared for mom and also he had a terrible accident on June 5,2017 and I driver of a car passed away and they sued him for all he had, and settled and paid 450K to the victims son. Needless to say any advice would be wonderful.

    • I just miss my brother the most and the closeness we all had at one time, more than anything. I pray and pray for him and his ex wife and my parents, I know they miss Ryne the same. I just wish things could go back to some happiness and family times, even though they will never be the same without Ryne. I love him and miss him a lot.

    • Tanya, I’m so sorry to hear of your loss. Grief is so hard on everyone. I hope that your family can find peace in this difficult time. I know one year anniversaries are especially hard. Hugs to you and your loved ones.
