Re: [holistichelping] Tom Ochuka: lost my brother
- Dear Tom
I echo the sentiments of Denis and Andrius
I did not realise that you had a brother with epilepsy. I used to work with some people who were epileptic and so I have some small idea of the problems they face, and their courage in going about their everyday lives. It is a sad loss.

- Dear Tom and All,
Pole sana for your great loss, and our deepest sympathies to you and your family, Tom. Your brother sounds like a wonderful person whose life was tragically cut short. But he will continue to inspire you and give you courage each day, and in that way, Edwin will truly live forever.
With love and greatest support in spirit, Janet
