    God took the strength of a mountain ,the majesty of a tree, the warmth of the summer sun, the calm of a quiet sea, the generous soul of nature, the comforting arm of night, the wisdom of ages, the power of a eagles flight, the joy of a morning in spring, the faith if a mustard seed, the patience of eternity, the depth of family need,then God combined these qualities when there was no more to add, he knew his masterpiece was completed he called him my Big brother Gary
    Love your baby sister Nickie
    Until we meet again
