My brother Neil 

You left without warning.

Gone so fast. 

Now all we have 

are memories of our past

You are loved by so many

You might not have known

But in our hearts Is where

You have grown.

The memories I have 

throughout the years

Will last forever with

Laughter and tears.

I miss you oh so much

So do all the lives that

You have touched

I can’t say goodbye

I can’t accept your death

You will live in my heart forever

Until my last breath.

Kevin Hughes
