"Big Brother, Big Brother, man gone to soon! I just spoke with you that Monday. We sat at dad's and ate crawfish, we just buried our sister Mooky on the 17th and you stepped into heaven on the 24th. It's God will and I know you're resting in his presence.
  I should've known because we walked out and you left, dad I watched you turn the truck around and pull off. For some reason I watched you leave until I couldn't see the brake lights. Man I miss you! Big brother!
Only for a short while God loaned Evangeline, and you to me.
Thank you God so much, rest peacefully in his presence my brother acknowledge him and he shall direct thy path.

"Rj you will always be in my heart going to miss you

"Only For a Short While

Oh, only for so short a while you
have loaned us to each other,
because we take form in your act of drawing us,
and we take life in your painting us,
and we breathe in your singing us.

But only for so short a while
have you loaned us to each other.
Because even a drawing cut in obsidian fades,
and the green feathers, the crown feathers,
of the Quetzal bird lose their color,
and even the sounds of the waterfall
die out in the dry season.

So, we too, because only for a short while
have you loaned us to each other.

-Aztec Indian Prayer"
