Meri explained her brother arrived at this decision “due to the rapid progression of his cancer & deterioration of his body.”

She shared with her 869K Instagram followers: “I have so many good memories with him over the years, because, siblings. I also have some not so good memories with him through the years, because, siblings.”

Meri Brown continued to share that she didn’t understand exactly why she was feeling this way. She clarified that “just” her mother had seven children. So, she still had three younger sisters who were alive. Plus, she had other siblings due to the unique structure of her family.

She continued to write out her feelings as she tried to understand them.

The only 4 that were born in CA and have memories of our young childhood there? The only 4 that were in existence before we moved to Utah where mom & dad began their lives as a plural family?

Not really coming to an answer, Meri Brown concluded she hoped she would understand why she felt this way one day. For now, she hoped her brother was resting in peace.
