My dear brother, my best friend, I love you so much. You are special to me in so many ways, and the close bond we shared our entire life together will always be cherished, and never forgotten. Words could never express the sorrow I feel that you are no longer here with me, but I find joy in the Lord knowing that you are now in His presence in the most beautiful place, and finding yourself at perfect peace. This is not goodbye, but only a departure of our time together, for we and all our loved ones will be together again one day in Glory. For ever and ever I love you!
