    WHO IS HE?
    He’s the one that says, “Don’t cry.”
    He’s the one that says, ” All you’ve got to do is try.”
    He’s the one that says, “Don’t give up trying to achieve it. Let me show you how to do it.”
    He’s the one to play with you in the park.
    The one with the gentlest heart.
    There’s where he is forever
    Because he’s MY brother.

  10. Although I sadly didn’t get to know my uncle as well as I’d hoped. I am happy I at least got to meet him and enjoy some funny moments. To know a little about family, so far away can mean a great deal!
    He was very kind, and very giving.
