James Barnes Mr.
In Loving Memory of Our Father and Beloved Brother
If Roses Grow in Heaven; Please pick a bunch for us.
Place them in our Loved One's arms , and tell him they're from us.
Tell him we Love him and miss him and when he turns to smile,
Place a kiss upon the cheek and hold him for a while.
Because Remembering him is easy, we do it everyday.
But there is an ache within our heart that will never go away. ~
