    Don’t think of him as gone away
    his journey’s just begun,
    life holds so many facets
    this earth is only one.
    Just think of him as resting
    from the sorrows and the tears
    in a place of warmth and comfort
    where there are no days and years.
    Think how he must be wishing
    that we could know today
    how nothing but our sadness
    can really pass away.
    And think of him as living
    in the hearts of those he touched…
    for nothing loved is ever lost
    and he was loved so much.
    Love you always Sis
