Just when we thought we could endure the pain and loss of two brothers, God came again and called you home. We have lost another brother and we miss you all, but God had yet another plan when he called you to be at His side.
You will be dearly and sadly missed. You are now at peace and have gained your wings. We can imagine Momma standing there and saying, “Come now my child, my baby; come to me, you are now home, no pain or sorrow. Come my son, as we enter together, take my hand and let me lead the way, not to worry, for we all are here waiting for you to enter into Heaven.”
Sleep our brother, for you are free of pain, sorrow or hurt and the best part, you are with Father God in Heaven.
