Someday, I hope this crushing feeling I have in my chest eases even just a little bit. There are no words to say how losing you feels...everything I think of doesn't come close to the pain. Everyone moves on and goes on with life...while I am, at times, still in sort of a denial...how can this be true? You were my brother...the one other person that knows everything about our family, the one other person who was supposed to carry on our name and share our sweet memories with our children and grandchildren. Losing you has completely changed who I am. I guess I have to believe that I will see you again someday...until then, not a day will go by in my life that you are not thought of, missed, or cried over. I love you Ira...

Love, Tina

Happy Birthday, my friend. You are never far from my heart. I miss you so much and the pain still won't.
I will see you again.

Sweet Ira, I think of you so often and smile...I really miss you more than I even know how to put it into words. You were honestly so very special to me, one of my very best friends & the pain of all of us losing you is so vivid still. Please know you will NEVER be forgotten and we all love u truly.

Do You Hear The Angel Speaking?
Do you hear the angel speaking?
Do you hear her heavenly voice?
Do you hear the song she's singing?
Will you help her to rejoice?
Do you hear her when you're weary
and find it hard to cope?
Do you hear her inspiration and
her messages of hope?
Do you hear her voice of wisdom...
as timeless as the sun,
The messages she speaks today
she's spoken since time begun.

Angels are more than fairy tales,
They're messengers from above,
Sent by our creator to guide us
with their love...
And although I've never seen one,
I hear them all the time...
Within each poem I write...within
each verse and rhyme;
Because you see, I'm just a channel
that they use to speak to you
To give you inspiration and to give
you guidance too...

For angels really do exist and they
are always near,
And if you read these poems aloud
then you will truly hear...
Messages from heaven...messages
from above...
The beautiful voices of angels
guiding you with love!

Happy Birthday, Special Treasure
God gave a gift to the world when you were born—
a person who loves, who cares,
who sees a person’s need and fills it,
who encourages and lifts people up,
who spends energy on others
rather than himself,
someone who touches each life he enters,
and makes a difference in the world,
because ripples of kindness flow outward
as each person you have touched, touches others.
Your birthday deserves to be a national holiday,
because you are a special treasure
for all that you’ve done.
May the love you have shown to others
return to you, multiplied.
I wish you the happiest of birthdays,
and many, many more,
so that others have time to appreciate you
