    Dear living father, the presence of my brother in my life is a gift to me.
    Thank you for his life, his heart and soul.
    Thanks for giving me someone who looked out for me and cared for me.
    Even the rivalry between us was a blessing to me.
    Thank you for what I learned from my brother’s life and love.
    So now I ask you Lord, bless my brother with the abundance of your love and mercy.
    Cover him with your grace, let him feel your tenderness and touch his soul.
    Let him know your mercy, set his spirit free.
    I present to you, oh Lord, my love for my brother.
    Open up the heavens to him.
    Go high on the mountain top my brother and we will meet again someday.’
    Love and miss you.
    Your little brother

    Losing you is one of the hardest things I have ever had to endure. We had so much fun growing up together and I could not have had a better big brother. You may be gone but you will always be in my heart and never ever forgotten. I will see you again someday and we will always be together. Love you so much. Butch
