Now We Are Down To One - Schizophrenia: The Perspective of a Father & Brother-in-Law

Now We Are Down To One

At approximately 1:15 a.m. on Sunday, my brother-in-law Bobby passed away at the Louisville Veterans Affairs Medical Center. He had been ill with cancer for some time, apparently longer than we knew of. He was 64 years old, and had had schizophrenia at least 30 plus years and his life was anything but normal. He really didn't take care of himself as well as he could have, due to his affliction and his unhealthy habits. He was also paranoid and trusted only his brother. Needless to say, we are all saddened by his passing but realize he is no longer suffering and is at peace. Maybe we could learn from this that once again life is short, so make the most of the time we have in the world and enjoy it. Till next time, and by the way, Happy St. Patrick's Day!
