I have known you since I was a kid. I will miss celebrating birthdays and holidays with you. I will miss sitting next to you watching races together. You were a part of our family. I am sure you are up in heaven sitting next to my grandpa, grandma and mike watching every race you can. To your family:
“Something better
Than words
Or sounds.

Look for me
In the people I’ve known
Or loved,
And if you cannot give me away,
At least let me live in your eyes
And not on your mind.

You can love me most
By letting
Hands touch hands
By letting
Bodies touch bodies
And by letting go
Of children
That need to be free.

Love doesn’t die,
People do.
So, when all that’s left of me
Is love,
Give me away”
