In Remembrance of Richard

My brother Richard with my oldest son Kyan
There should have been so much more of this, Richard. I'll never understand the why but I truly know you are forever out of pain. The years seem long, the memories sometimes distant, but we will never forget you. Love you and can't wait to see you again someday.

If Tears Could Build A Stairway

If tears could build a stairway
And memories were a lane
We would walk right up to heaven
And bring you back again

No farewell words were spoken
No time to say goodbye
You were gone before we knew it
And only God knows why

Our hearts still ache with sadness
And secret tears still flow
What it meant to lose you
No one can ever know

But now we know you want us
To mourn for you no more
To remember all the happy times
Life still has much in store

Since you'll never be forgotten
We pledge to you today
A hallowed place within our hearts
Is where you'll always stay

Richard Gene Kirk 12/25/1988~7/9/2008
