Branen had such a kind soul and loving nature! I will never forget his smile!

My dearest Branen

In memory of…
Saddest words to hear...
A dearly beloved...
Never again to be near...

Why? Lord, how can this be?
My heart is breaking...
Selfishly I ask, why hast thou forsaken me?

For twenty one Springs,
With just as many Falls...
Three months shy of your twenty second,
Jesus did call.

With much hesitation, I begin to understand,
Your short time on earth was just a temporary gift.
There is no time left for us,
God Almighty now has your hand!

Resting peacefully,
You almost appear to smile.
Grandmother is beside you,
She and your mom know just your style!

One more “I love you” before I go,
And in his ear I whisper, “Please come visit me in my dreams, day or night... anytime”.
Seemingly silly to some, this I know.
But my God will let him hear,
I have no doubt.

Love Always,
Aunt Rhonda
