MY OLDEST BROTHER

DIED ONE DAY BEFORE HIS 9TH BIRTHDAY.

Cause of death: Pneumonia and measels.

He was the oldest son.
Orville Lee was my dad and moms's pride and joy.
Even though he passed away before I was born, he has remained a major part of our family through out my life. Dad and mom never stopped talking about him, as with my other two brothers (Roger & Paul), that passed away before my birth.

Orville Lee lives on through the love of his siblings. Mom and Dad made sure of that.

WE LOVE YOU BROTHER!

For Orville Lee

A child is a treasure,
That can't be replaced,
Full of love and laughter,
With sweet childlike grace.

Sometime they grow older,
Other times we have to let go,
They can't stay with us,
Just why, we don't know.

I know of one such sweet child,
His name....Orville Lee,
It seemed such a cruel thing,
To take one such as he.

The Angels needed more sunshine,
Like this bright, sweet lad,
Never meaning to hurt anyone,
Especially his loving Mom and Dad.

They knew he couldn't stay here,
He had to be protected from unknown harm,
So they took him to Heaven,
To keep him comfy and warm.

The questions are so many,
The answers are so few,
But Orville Lee always sends down,
Pretty Bluebirds...just for you!
