My brother, was (11) years older than me. He was the most amazing, loving, caring individual. He loved his home and his family, and preferred the simple things in life. He will be sadly missed by his wife, daughter, and me, his only surviving sibling, as well as his niece, nephews and many friends. His funeral will be on Tuesday, so I will not be posting or able to comment on your blogs for several days. This is truly a sad time for us all.
The Broken Chain
We little knew this morning,
God was going to call your name.
In life we loved you dearly,
In death, we do the same.
It broke our hearts to lose you.
You did not go alone.
For part of us went with you,
The day God called you home.
You left us beautiful memories,
Your love is still our guide.
And although we cannot see you,
You are always at our side.
Our family chain is broken,
And nothing seems the same,
But as God calls us one by one,
The chain will link again.
