    Hey little man, sorry it went this way.
    I’m sure things are much better now,
    Better then yesterday.

    I know in my heart you fought a good fight.
    I bet you were tired by then,
    Hangin on day and night.

    Your not sick anymore, must be nice.
    To be happy right now,
    was a big safrifice.

    Your family is going to miss you.
    Most will never forget.
    The smiles you placed in their hearts,
    Most from you Im sure they will admit.

    9 years isnt long,
    for all the things here to see.
    I guess God had a better plan for you,
    A healthy, happy life to be.

    One day little bro, I’ll see you again.
    Rest for sure, cause I don’t know when.
    Tell God I said hi.
    Remeber, no reason to cry.
    You won a race,
    That most of us will face.
    Take care Buddy. Love Arron,
