I have a brother who died...

He died before I was born, in a disease that I do not know the english word for. There is no cure and it happens to small children - it is very sudden and i think it has something to do with breathing... Oh well. Anyways - he died before I was born but he has always been very alive to me, even though my mothet doesnt like to talk about it. Still I had never been to his grave - UNTIL this weekend when we went back to our hometown for my grandmas 80th birthday. I decided that I for the first time wanted to go. I brought my bf - a candle and some flowers and i just sat there and cried. Cried because i missed him... Is it really possible to miss someone you´ve never met - someone you´ve never known?

I don't think so. You don't know him so you can't possibly cry over him. Yes I know you did but... hmm... unless his absence kept being remarked upon - then you will be reminded again and again... that's something else.
