The One’s We Love

It is hard to collect my thoughts and as I write these words tears are welling up in my eyes.

We all cherish the people in our lives, and quite frankly, take them for granted sometimes.
For those of us who have siblings, sometimes it is a love, hate relationship.

We take for granted, that these people, our family, our friends, will always be there, be it with a helping hand, or a with a listening ear, or maybe some guidance in one way or another.

We take for granted that whenever we call on the telephone it will always be answered.
We may not always see eye to eye, or get along with the one’s we love, but that’s ok, hopefully we work it out and move on.

In the end we are left with an everlasting love, some memories and perhaps some photos.

My brother Rusty Scott Cantwell passed away this past Sunday April 29, 2012.

We had been asking God for a miracle, or to not have Rusty suffer, God decided to call my brother home.

May you finally rest, and find some peace is the kingdom of God.
Rusty my brother, my friend, you will always be loved and always be missed.

  9. Words often don’t seem to even come close to what we want to say and as rich as our language is, it can fail us. But your words above are a wonderful memorial to your brother. I am sorry for your loss.
