To our Uncle Andy,

We are both very sorry to see you go so soon Uncle Andy.

You were Jeffrey's Godfather and you were both born on the 6th of May. We lived miles apart but you always left a message for Jeffrey for his birthday and sent us gifts for Christmas when we were little.

Mary-Anne still laughs when she remembers the time she and Mom were at your place to help you prepare the little bags of candy for the kiddes at Halloween. Had a lot of fun that night.

Our thoughts are with the family and those who love you.

Adieu Uncle Andy. Rest in peace.

With much love from your niece and nephew/Godson in France, Mary-Anne and Jeffrey.

I will miss you my big brother. There were miles and miles of earth and sea between us, yet our love for one another remained strong. I will miss hearing you laugh when I say goofy stuff over the phone. We shared so many happy moments together, they will never be forgotten, YOU will never be forgotten. I will cherish those memories forever. We shared the good times and the bad, we faced the world as brother and sister. My only regret is that I couldn't be by your side when you needed me most but am comforted in knowing you were not alone. Be Blessed and rest in peace big brother. I love you.
Your sister, Kathy.

God’s Garden

By Melissa Shreve

God looked around his garden and found an empty place
He then looked down upon the Earth and saw your tired face
He put his arms around you and lifted you to rest
With the help of his angels they flew you to your heavenly place

Gods garden must be beautiful, he always takes the best
He knew you were suffering, he knew you were in pain
He knew that you would never get well on Earth again

He saw the road was getting rough and the hills too hard to climb
He closed your weary eyelids and whispered “Peace be Thine”
It broke our hearts to lose you but you didn’t go alone
For part of us went with you the day God called you home.
