Poem: Dear Brother Your Memory Will Never Fade

My dear Brother now that you are gone
You’re no longer here to share
The bond we had together –
A bond of love and care.
Yet, somehow something tells me
You are watching over me –
Now that from Worldly cares
You finally are free.
I miss you so very much,
And my tears I cannot hide
Yet, within my heart, I feel
You are always by my side.
Ever since you went away
Life has never been the same
Yet, it comforts me to know
That one day we’ll meet again.



Rodney(Mr. Amazing)
I will feel this way till the end of my time. You and I, one hell of a chemistry. Rodney I know the things in life were not perfect, but when it came to you, you were all that and more bae. My life is incomplete without you Rodney. In my heart baby, together forever. You not only captured my heart, you touched my soul.
You and I Rodney- From your loving wife Liz (babe)
