In Memoriam to the Unknown Sister-In-Law

This was a tough one to write but for all the wrong reasons.
My sister-in-law Rosaline died yesterday.
I had not seen or spoken to her in at least 10 years.
She made two terrible mistakes 50 years ago.
She married my oldest brother.
Mistake number one.
She stayed with him for almost 50 years.
Big mistake number two.
None of us in the family had heard from my brother in four years since my mother dies and I missed that funeral.
My sister and I didn't lose any sleep.
I think once in one of my TRY to act like a forgiving Christian I left a voice mail message on his phone on one of his birthdays.
God is NEVER fooled.
This blog is not at all what I wrote and deleted twice before postong.
There are many things I could say--all of them bad about my brother.
There si no point an dno glory to God.
Rosaline loved him--I suppose and that should be enough.
I always thought he was a meaner version of ME with the Long Suffering Spouse who treated her like a slave.
But she loved him.
In the end that's not a bad thing. I wish much unhappiness towards my brother --mostly to knock that huge ship off his shoulder but even I am sad he is alone now.
I doubt he has much of a relationship with his kids and whatever grand-kids there may be--I have never kept track of that but being alone--would not wish that on anyone.
Which is the real torments of Hell--being alone with none to bear the burden.
Rest in peace Rosaline--my mother never gave you any and you deserved better.
