    Little brother you are healed! Yes, you will be missed, but we intend to celebrate you this holiday season.

    We little knew that day,
    God was going to call your name.
    In life we loved you dearly,
    In death, we do the same.

    It broke our hearts to lose you.
    You did not go alone.
    For part of us went with you,
    The day God called you home.

    You left us beautiful memories,
    Your love is still our guide.
    And although we cannot see you,
    You are always at our side.

    Our family chain is broken,
    And nothing seems the same,
    But as God calls us one by one,
    The chain will link again!

    It’s hard to believe we are here at this point CJ! You are missed by all of us and we know you are swinging those golf clubs in Heaven right now! I think you are the bravest brother ever. You faced this illness head on and fought the good fight! Rest is definitely in store for you now…and some dancing! Love you much and miss your silly grin!
