To Kevin from your Siblings.
We thought of you today,
but that's nothing new.
We thought about you yesterday,
and days before that too.
We think of you in silence,
we often speak your name.
Now all we have are memories
and your picture in a frame.
Your memory is our keepsake,
with which we'll never part.
God has in his keeping.
We have you in our heart.
