I hold onto our memories, the ones that are so dear,
To try to keep you always close, now you are not here
You were called, it was your time
It is so true, you left a legacy, there was no one like you
You were very special, And I just want to say
I feel lost in many ways, you are not here today
I will never forget you, and I know I have been blessed
To have you for my brother, because you were the best...
