From His Eyes: I close my eyes, but don't see dark. Instead I see the light. I'm not afraid of where I will park. At least not tonight. The sounds around me distract. But I keep myself lifted. I know people are upset by how they act. But I know I'm gifted. The pain inside is worse than they know. I don't want them to worry. I understand how their fears can grow. I wish this thing would hurry. I can't do things anymore for myself. Tho my wife is my love. I hope that she can still be herself, when I am up above.. I cannot breathe or cough or eat. I can't even get up. I know deep inside this can't be beat. Helpless like a pup. Please ease this pain, and help me, to be somewhere better. I want to be painless, happy, and free. Wish I could write a letter. If I could write, I'd let them know my thoughts. I could get this out. My life here was meaningful, not for naughts. Please family don't pout. I love you all, even if I can't quite say it. This you all should know. This body I'm now in is no longer fit. It's almost time to go. When I'm gone, I will still help see you thru. All the shit life brings. I'll help you all to be strong, smart, and true. When it no longer stings. Please live life for me, keep me in your psyche. For then I'm still here. Remember me as I was before what you now see. Live life with no fear.

Our hearts bleed the tears of loss. Ashes will soon be spread across.. the property where he was the boss. This is where he wanted to doss. Our prayers were not answered.. our thoughts of hope were all ignored.. The man we loved died all cancered.. and now within us is where he is stored. Remember him as he was before he was sick. Remember the times that he would joke so quick. Think of, and smile, when you see him play a trick.. Or when he'd poke at you laughingly with a giant stick. His shell is now empty, his soul has moved on. Somewhere a horse with his energy has been born. We will find this horse, to it we will be drawn. First we need to take the time to cry and to mourn. We think of this loss, and we begin to cry. We think it's too early .. and still we ask why.. .. couldn't they catch it before he had to die.. I blame AGENT ORANGE, and the coverup to deny. To all those out there, who are missing this man. Please stick together, we're a family, a clan. We need the support, for together thru this we can.. .. make it and more. His new life just began.

Dear John, I'm sorry you're gone, I'm sorry you felt pain. I'm sorry we're drawn, to cry tears just like rain. I know you were strong. Hopes were to prolong, your life for many months.. .. but the doctors were wrong. They did not quite catch, their heads they would scratch. Then like a strike of a match, life in your body began to detach. I'll remember you as you were. Just the way that you'd prefer. A chieftain of natives for you sir. I think all the family will concur. Please watch over my mother. Also my children and my brother. As well as his kids, and any other, compared to you there's not another. We are indeed feeling remorse. It is just par for the course. I felt your energy today, like the force. We will be on the lookout for the horse. As you walk in the heavens, as you dance in the stars. We will think of lucky sevens, shining bright up over mars. I'll remember your poker face. How my mom, you would embrace. The way you'd handle with grace, any situation you could encase. You were quite patient and proud. You stuck out a bit in the crowd. Even at times when you'd get loud. You lived life to the fullest allowed. You were hurt and left astray, you had so much taken away. Yet you still lived life in a way, where others lives would be okay. You were a tough man outside, but that was just due to pride. For the feelings you set aside, would come out with whom you'd confide. Emotions made you soft in heart, you'd wait for others to depart. I think this was just your art. It's how in this life you played your part. We'll miss you so very much. Your laugh and tough touch. Cigarettes were just a crutch, tho you loved them as such. From the things that you've taught, our children will have caught. You will live on as you aught, for we'll remember your plot. I hope you're now at ease. I hear your voice in the breeze. You have passed down the keys, to live this life as you'd please. with love, Will Brown
