Farewell to our Brother

“Those special memories of you will always bring a smile, if only we could have you back for just a little while. Then we could sit and talk again just like we used to do, you meant so very much to everyone you knew. The fact that you are no longer here will always cause us pain, but you are in our hearts forever until we meet again..”
