From Sherry,
My brother my best friend, through good times and bad, you are always my brother.
Now you are with mom (Marie) and dad (Norman).

You gave no one a last farewell,
Nor ever said goodbye.
You were gone before we knew it,
And only God knows why.
A million times we miss you,
A million times we cry.
In our hearts you hold a place,
No one else can ever fill.
It broke our hearts to lose you,
But you didn't go alone.
For part of us went with you,
The day God took you home.
We will meet again some someday,
I know in a better place.
I thank God he made you my brother,
While you were here on earth.
