There you were all laid out
covers tucked under your chin
It took me a while to focus
to find you, the light was dim.

You didn't look any different
In an instant I knew it was you
Couple bruises upon your forehead
Lips parted, like always you'd do

I wanted to remember each feature
As I stared and studied your face
It was the last time I'd look upon you
In the flesh, in light of God's grace

What's left is some earthly possesions
Some photgraphs to remember you by
And the ache in my heart that will linger
With each memory and tear that I cry

Your ashes now "Dust in the Wind"
As Paul on piano would play
I wish with each beat of my heart
That with you I had one more day

Brother you know that I love you
I don't mean to be broken and cry
I hope you don't see all my sorrow
But it's so hard to tell you good-bye

In loving memory of my brother Roderick
7/8/68 to 8/29/02

Life may have influenced who we R, but we're responsible for what we become.

Oh Dovie...



I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. My heart is with you, and hey, lady...come on home...

You have been missed.

And if I may, I light two candles. One for your brother, and one for you...

A beautiful tribute Becky. Has it been almost a year? It seems like it happened just yesterday. I keep you in my prayers you know. I hope to catch you on ICQ soon!

Oh, lady... this just wrenches the heart... a beautiful expression of a grief that hasn't lessened.

It's so good to see you posting, Dovie... hang around, please? *S*

Thanks y'all! Yep Sharon, it's been a year the 29th this month, and it does seem like it wasn't that long ago.

I still miss him deeply. Still shed the tears.  Thank you all again.
