My Brother

Friends and family can remember you, 
over the years for your kindness,
generosity and faithfulness, a true 
gentleman…

Friends have told how they keep 
coming back to those memories…

You were a good man and a good friend,
 to everyone that knew you…

You would give the shirt off your back, 
if that were all they wanted or needed…

If they needed to talk about anything, 
you were there…

Even when you didn’t have 2 nickels, too
 rub together for yourself, you would go
 out on that limb, to help a friend in need…

My brother you will be truly missed 
by so many…

As many people that knew you, 
loved you, there wasn’t anyone that I know, 
that disliked you my brother…

Your suffering is over now, you have moved 
on to the next plain, you will met up again, 
with those who have gone before you, you will
 wait for us until we come calling…


Goodbye, my brother, my friend and
 my strength, until we meet again…

Help Someone

Life is what you make of it.
You can be in the arena or in the sidelines to sit.

Help a fellow brother, let them know you care.
Bring hope for someone that is in despair.

Give the shirt off your back and give to the poor.
Smile at someone and make their spirits soar.

Start a conversation and share a thought.
Let someone know that friendship is what you brought.

Stay with someone awhile, that has a broken heart.
Help them mend the pieces that unknowingly, fell apart.

Bond with someone who wants life to end.
Stay and listen and be that loving friend.

Pray for the heavy laden, chained to their past.
Let them know, Christ died for them, and their sins he has cast.

Forgive others that have done you wrong.
Forgive yourself and your heart will be strong.

Enjoy life and find happiness in the little things.
Try to think positive, no matter what life brings
