Richard my Brother, who took is life on th 18th December 2010, age 45 years young

by Anthony Fairchild
(Plymouth, Devon, England)

A Husband, a Son, a Father, grandkids in tow...
You left all the people that loved you so...
Oh why did this happen, I miss my Bro...

Outside you seemed happy, this life which become,
But inside went deep, deeper then numb...
In childhood you were older, older than should be,
We went without father; you were father to me...

In Life you did struggle, to find comfort and needs...
I hope where you are, fills you with glee...
When you look down, protecting family, show me a sign and I'll think of thee...

With guidance I know, your family will grow...
They will fulfill all their dreams, because it is writing so...
And when you look down, you'll be the proudest man there...
Just like it was, when you were around...

Richard, R' Ricky, my brother, my bro...
A Husband, a Son, a Father, grandkids in tow...
You left all the people that loved you so...
Oh why did this happen, I miss my Bro...

The Kender Mourning Song

by Ethan
(Virginia)

My twin sister loved to read, just like me, and this poem was in one of her favorite books. Emily, your spirit will live on with those of the heroes. I will always love you. May you rest in peace.

Always before, the Spring returned.
The bright world in its cycle spun
In the air and flowers, grass and fern,
Assured and cradled by the sun.

Always before, you could explain
The turning darkness of the earth,
And how that dark embraced the rain,
And gave the ferns and flowers birth.

Already I forget those things,
And how a vein of gold survives
The mining of a thousand springs,
The season of a thousand lives.

Now winter is my memory,
Now autumn, now summer light -
So every spring from now will be
Another season into the night.

-Mary Kirchoff

Truckers Paradise

by Susie Galloway
(Pahrump,NV)

I knew when I seen you today it
wouldn't be long, before
the Lord called you home

You took care of everyone, including
me while you were here
We'll all be alright, so go without fear

There IS a place for Truckers in Heaven
though you said it wasn't so,
Today you joined your Mom and Dad, I know

We will all miss you so much, we
would have loved for you to stay
but we all knew the Lord needed
to take you away

I believe your not too far,
the Truckers Paradise just
needed one more shining star

You said you would walk again and
you sure did, breathing better than ever
We will miss you always and forever

Once again you're out on the open road
only this time you're not
carrying such a heavy load

Love you brother,

Lippy

In Loving Memory of Greg Galloway 3/26/49-10/20/09

by Susie Galloway
(Pahrump, NV)

Whenever I look up at the moon,
my brother, I will think of you
I will put both hands around it
and you can do it too

No matter where you are or how far
we will be holding the same star

I've loved you my brother for
all of these years
We've shared happy times and
we've shed a few tears

The Lord has called you home way to soon
but I will never forget you my brother
especially when I look up at the moon

Your loving sister

My Brother

by Susie Galloway
(Pahrump, NV)

Who knew that morning, God
was going to call your name
He took you so quickly, we will never be the same

You are now without pain, no more tears
no more days and no more years
I miss you so much and wish you were here
I've cried every single day for the last year

You watched out for me when I was young
if ever I needed someone, you were the one
It didn't matter, wrong or right
You would stand up for your little sis and fight

It doesn't matter what they say,
who cares what you did, 'back in the day'
I'll always love you anyway

I guess what they say is really true, we
were never promised tomorrow
Our short time on earth is only borrowed

I'm trying so hard to understand, that
we will all be together again

Until we meet on God's Golden Shore
I'll just miss you more and more

Love you brother
10/20/10
