Dear Leanne and Family,
I wrote down some words from the Fern family. I got to see Barry before he passed and I thank God for that. Watching you take care of my brother those two days were there, was so comforting. I pray for heart. He loved you dearly. Gods Speed.
You will always be in my heart and mind,
Still making me laugh because your stories live on.
I hold you in a thought and I can feel you.
I feel you and this gives us strength and courage.
Thanks for all you have taught me.
I know we’ve all had our differences in the past.
But, I never wished death on you.
The tears I have cried for you are real.
For you Brother, I promise you this,
I will go on with my life and make you proud.
I will always hold you in my heart.
I promise you I will be missing you every day till the end of time,
but this is not my end and I can’t hold my head underwater.
I need to breathe.
I need to love and miss you,
but I also need to live because through me you will live,
you will still laugh and love like no other,
you will still hug and kiss.
You will forever be in our lives,
you will forever be my brother
and a best friend.
I am going to miss you dearly.
I think of you and wonder why?
I might cry or smile,
but at the end of the day,
I am one day closer to you…
RIP Barry R. Fern you will be sadly missed…
