Everybody has a soulmate...

Please pray for my brother. If I ever had a soulmate, it was him.

"Is not this the carpenter...?"

-Mark 6:3

I am not sure whether your brother is living or deceased by your description.
But I know what it is like to have a "soulmate". I have 5 brothers and 3 sisters, (Ichiro, Shoshiru, Akira, Jomei , and Michio, and sisters Sumiko, Meiko, and Ayako.) My "soulmate" brother is Shoshiru, who though we're alot different in some ways- He's smaller than me (I'm a bodybuilder, an athlete and an extrovert, he's frail , an intellectual and timid)we share the same interest in much more than what we're different in. We know each other better than the rest of our siblings.I bonded with him closer than all the others, though I love my family equally.
I'm his guardian angel/bodyguard of sorts...He's my wise council, my confidant, my friend. He's also my hero. He was born way premature, and has fought epileptic like seizures (not actualy epilepsy), a moderate hearing and vision loss, and a poor immune system all his life. He's often sick with colds, flues, and respiratory infections but never complains. Despite it all, he graduated HS at 16, and now teaches in Catholic HS.
All my brothers and sisters are great, but I know what it's like to have one, special brother.


That's "God bless YOUR brother ", in Japanese.
