Decide what it means: Only you can do this. No one else can tell you what to do. You may reach a religious conclusion. You may decide to be thankful for memories. You may say that your time together taught you to be a nice person. You may say it's nature's course. What I do know is that he was fortunate to have had a natural brother who loved him. Many people would give anything for this privilege.
