  5. will not know
    Goodbyes were said long ago

    I wish you knew about us here
    My brother no longer has to fear
    The Master awaits for you and him
    Fate decided your light be dim
    Twenty years separate the two
    Uncle and brother the days are few
    Before you leave just one more
    Hug allow me you whom I adore
    My brother, the boy and then friend
    To carry you home and mend
    In my eyes you are whole again
    Playing outside nine and ten
    Bless you brother I hold you dear
    In my heart and soul forever near
    Goodbye for now but not for long
    Sweet memories and Beatles songs

  6. Goodbye my little brother just for now, you are with mom and she is holding her little boy, you are free of pain, and your body whole as our Maker has promised, no suffering just perfect forever and in in eternal Peace you are graced by His light and wrapped in love. Till I see you rest my little brother and continue the art work you started at the memorial art gallery every Saturday the two!of us on the bus to an adventure. I held your hand as we walked to school and now I hold you in my heart.
