Memories of a wonderful brother......











































Don't forget to click on the pictures to see an enlarged view.

I finished this little album in my brother's memory. I hope no one is offended by the personal nature of these pictures but I was so proud of him and miss him so terribly, it was a little way I could share who he was with the world and have a little book for myself. The pictures speak for themselves. Thank you for letting me share this with you.

What a beautiful way to put together memories of your brother. I wish I could read it all but what I could brought tears to my eyes. The memories are yours to keep in that special place in your heart.

Very nice Mary! What a beautiful way to remember and honor him, and the verses, well I guess they say it all! I am sure he was very proud having you as his sister. I am just really sorry your family had to go thru all of this!

What a loving tribute to your brother John. The poems are all very meaningful but none more than the words you wrote, Mary. How lucky we are as followers of Christ, to know that some day we will be reunited with our loved ones who have gone on before. I am so sorry for your loss. I hope you loving memories will give you comfort.
A hug for you!

What a wonderful memorial to your brother and yourself. I hope that God brings you peace as we celebrate the resurrection of Christ this Sunday. Because He lives, we will also live forever.

Dear Mary,
Losing loved ones is always hard but what a wonderful way you have found to share your heart. You and all your family (your brother too) are in my prayers today. He was a special man to have inspired such a loving tribute.

Thanks for sharing the inspiration - you've given me an idea of what to do with my collection of memorabilia from my Dad and my Husband and my Father in law. I guess I was waiting for just the right inspiration and now you've provided it. Thank you.

Hugs, blessings and prayers that God will ease your heart and soul - Jean

Mary, what a beautiful book. Now you can hold your memories even closer. I see a couple of my friends have been visiting your blog. Anne and Lynn are very dear friends of mine here in Michigan. Hugs!

Offend? Oh, my gosh...it brought me to tears! I'm so sorry for your loss. I've lost 2 brothers now, and it is very hard. And strange...very strange to think that a part of your childhood is gone. anyway, I just wanted to drop a note to say thanks so much; this is a very special project and I'm grateful you were able to share it.

Hugs,
