Goodbye my dear brother..

It is with much grief and sadness that I announce the sad passing of my brother. After being in hospital for six weeks and battling pneumonia amongst other things, Kenneth finally passed away and left his world and body of suffering to run straight into green meadows of freedom. I love you Kenneth and will never forget you.





Kenneth Clark
Forever loved.
Forever in our hearts.
Born 21st August 1959
Died 12th December 2011

missy said...

My thoughts and prayers are with you.

I have an uncle who is mentally challenged and has been confined to a wheel chair his entire adult life. My uncle has "visions" and has told me time and time again that when he dies God will be there and that he has seen himself running and jumping. He is so clear of this that he has no fear of death. He has asked us not to be sad but to be happy when he moves on.

hugs
-missy-
