This is the song I asked our brother Bobby to play at your service. I want others to know Jesus is always waiting for them to put their lives into His hands. I pray you & your family are in heaven & we will all be together one day.

One Pair of Hands
Song by Carroll Roberson

One pair of hands formed the mountains
One pair of hands formed the sea
One pair of hands made the sun and the moon
Every bird, every flower, every tree
One pair of hands formed the valleys
The ocean, the rivers and the sand
Those hands are so strong, so when life goes wrong
Put your faith in the one pair of hands
One pair of hands, healed the sick
One pair of hands raised the dead
One pair of hands calmed the ragging storm
And thousands of people were fed
One pair of hands said I love you
And those hands were nailed to a tree
Those hands are so strong, so when life goes wrong
Put your faith into one pair of hands
Those hands are so strong, so when life goes wrong
Put your faith into one pair of hands
Put your faith into one pair of hands
One pair of hands

My precious brother,
I can't believe it's been a year I wish everyone could have known the tender, big hearted person I grew up with. God gave you such a heart for people then one day you lost yourself. I often think of the days when we were kids- the good, the bad & the ugly.
I love & miss you ❤

Rest easy my friend,until we meet again...
Though I haven't known you very long, Im glad to have got the chance to listen to your fond memories about your family and things you enjoyed doing. Such a caring and genuine man that would lend an ear to just listen and give advice if he saw fit.
I know that sparkle has returned to your eyes as you're reunited with your loved ones that were waiting up in the heavens for you,as you missed them terribly. 
My condolences to the family

My precious brother

January 29, 2021
I've been thinking back to when we were kids, remembering how Billy, you & myself would build roads & tunnels for the toy cars on the hill of dirt in the backyard or we would play King of the Mountain. I always played trucks & cars, cops & robbers or baseball because I was outnumbered by boys. You were the one who taught me to climb a tree. I remember us building snow forts & having snowball fights. I remember the time I followed you & Billy back to the swamp then fell in. You were the one who taught me to drive a stick shift in the Rambler Classic you had. We used to go ice skating at Iona Lake or the arena in Cherry Hill. The first & only time you & Debbie went snow skiing with me you stabbed the back of your leg with the pole. I still don't know how you did that. I remember how we used to get Billy to laughing so hard he'd start coughing. I remember when you held Stephanie for the first time how much love was in your eyes. Then when your own son Billy was born...  So many good memories growing up with you as my brother. You had a good, kind & loving heart. I wish everyone could have known you like I do before addiction took over. I believe that God can meet with a person in an instant before their last breath therefore my brother, I am holding on to the promise that comes through Jesus.
Love you forever❤❤❤
If anyone who is reading this doesn't have a relationship with Jesus, I urge you to say this prayer.
Jesus I believe that you are the son of God. I'm asking you to forgive me from my sins. Come into my heart, cleanse me & help me live for you. In Jesus name, Amen
John 3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his only son so whoever believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.

There are so many memories with you growing up that I have been replaying in my head over and over again. I remember sleeping over every weekend and going to the fire house with you. I remember playing on the fire trucks like they were jungle gyms . I remember you letting me sit on your lap and steer the fire chief cruiser in the field across the street from the house . I remember how you used to never have a shirt on and your big ol belly would be hanging out while you watched nascar and drank Diet Pepsi. I remember how one time you asked me what I wanted my name to be and I said Cinderella so for the next two months you only called me Cinderella lol. I remember you sleeping out in the other room so that I could sleep with mommom. I remember you always used to come home with a surprise for me .I remember the countless camping trips and you introducing me to scrapple .  I remember the happy poppop. And that’s how I’ll always remember you . For the good times no matter how long ago ,still out weighs the bad times .  No matter what has happened , I was always a phone call away . I love you more then you will ever know . And I am beyond greatful that I was able to talk to you last Friday and that I got to tell you I love you one last time .I’ll keep you close to my heart forever ❤️Rest In Peace ❤️
