Today the tears flow for you my Brother - not that I would bring you back from Heaven but for all the days and years we missed through no fault of our own.  Even as adults there always seemed to be something to keep us apart......we will be together forever some day and that soothes my heart!!!  While I can't understand the path that life dealt us I can accept that God still loves us more than anyone one Earth and you are in His presence now....with Jenny.....our beloved sister!!!!  Rest high on that mountain sweet Stanley!!!!!  Sending Hugs to Heaven!!!!!
