In Loving Memory of My Brother on His Birthday,

Don't sit in silence & weep for me,
I've moved on, my spirit is free.
I'm in every flower & bird in site,
I'm in the stars and wind and moon at night.
I'm the morning sun that greets the day,
I'm each burst of laughter when you're at play.
I'm in your happiest loving memories...
So do not cry, my spirit is free.

James D. (Jimmy) Kinnen

Dear Brother in Heaven,

I sit here and ponder how very much I'd like to talk with you today, there are so many things we didn't get to say.
I know how much you care for me and how much I care for you, and each time I think of you, I know you'll miss me too.

An angel came and took you by the hand, and said
Your place was ready in Heaven, far was time to leave behind all those you dearly loved.
You had so much to live for, you had so much to still seems impossible that God has taken you.

And though your life on earth is past, in Heaven it starts anew. You'll live for all eternity, just as God has promised you. Though you've walked through Heaven's gate, we are never apart, for every time I think of you, You're right here...deep within my heart.

Love Always & Forever...Your Big Sis,

    Hi again.
Glancing at your page, we have some things in common. I, too, have 2 sisters. I am the youngest, though. My brother was the youngest of us all, that I mentioned passed away in 2007. I live in Tx., the Dallas area. I want to add you as a friend on here and hope you will add me, too.

    My brother will celebrate a birthday in heaven at the end of the month. He was my big brother in every great sense of the phrase. I am sorry that you understand that unending emptiness that a brother's absence represents.

I read your sweet blog. I just had a friend who's Sister passed this week. The poem was so beautiful that I copied and pasted it to her Facebook page. I wanted you to know. Your Brother knows he is not nearly as far away as you is eternal...yours for him and his for you. Blessings, Gracie

    emoticon Sorry you lost your brother. Remember, there is some lonely little boy today who would be happy to have you spend time with him. I saw an article on the internet where a college girl volunteered to tutor after school at a poor neighborhood elementary school and she'd befriended a nine year old boy, whose brother had been shot during a drug deal. She wanted to help this boy since her brother had been killed in a car accident.
