  4. Heaven has called upon you, my big brother to day,
    leaving so many words left to say.
    But now it’s too late, for your time has come,
    words unspoken; I am sure everybody has some.
    Regrets and wishes are probably there too,
    but lasting forever are memories of you.
    You was always there for me night or day.
    There have been many times that we disagreed,
    but we were there for each other in time of need.
    Now it’s time for me to say Good-Bye,
    until we meet again in heaven to fly.

  5. Remember the day that me, you, and Vic was at your house fixing on Vic’s magnum and you was cussing and fussing. Me and Vic couldn’t help but laugh. Kinda reminds me how I use to watch the old man (Chester) work on his car and would start to fuss. I’m gonna miss you bro. Your lil’bro Ken
