In memorium, Shane Isaac Frear, my brother.
My big brother Shane. We share a biological father, whom we both refer to as a donor, not a father. He was not a great father.
However he produced myself,and my Big Brother, Shane. Last August I got to know my half-brother for the first time. I got a phone call whilst milking my cow, from my Aunt Sharon, she described to me the circumstances around Shane's life, he was dying of cancer, and his wish was to have a relationship with me, before he passed on.
I am Honored that he thought enough of me to reach out, and take a chance. We called and wrote each other I made an attempt to meet up with him at Christmas time, however he was recovering from a nasty Flu. We did not meet face to face. This is my regret, I had hoped to hug him one time before our gracious Heavenly Father took him home.
we had allot in common, we both had a desire to 'live off the grid' we both had a bit of adrenaline junkie going on... He was a Smoke Jumper. Exciting job, leaping out of planes to fight wild land fires. I admire him, he fought long and hard to overcome the rare cancer he had. In the end it was not His will. He was ushered out of this world with his Mother, his step-father and a dear friend Erin at his side. I thank them for sharing him with me. I feel a bond to him, we both had to over come major obstacles because of our shared DNA.
I hope he will have the softness of heart to accept the Gospel and enjoy the embrace of Jesus and our Father.
Good bye big brother....
I love you.
