Travis, Sorry to hear about your loss. This is a poem that we received when we lost Brian. Hope it helps you as much as it helped us.

To the living I am gone
To the sorrowful, I will never return:
To the angry, I was cheated
But to the happy, I am at peace.
And to the faithful, I have never left,
I cannot be seen, but I can be heard.
So as you stand upon a shore
gazing at a beautiful sea--
As you look upon a flower
and admire its simplicity--
Remember me.
Remember me in your heart,
Your thoughts, and your memories,
Of, the times we loved,
The times we cried,
The times we laughed,
For if you always think of me,
I will never have gone.

Our prayers are with you, Uncle Butch and Aunt Debbie

Bill was quite a character when we were growing up, but we lost touch as we grew older. My thoughts are with Travis and his family.

Uncle Bill,

I tried for so long to find you for so many years and I was able to find you in 2000. I was glad we were able to talk and exchange Christmas cards. I just there was more time for you to have met my family. My deepest condolences to Travis and his family.

Semper Fidelis,

Your nephew,

Brannon Small

My favorite Brother. How I love you! I have been looking for you. I wanted so bad to talk to you to let you know how much I miss you. I should have been there for you. I'm sorry, please forgive me. I will always remember when we were kids. I'm glad there was a picture of you. I love you and I always will.
