IF ROSES GROW IN HEAVEN

If roses grow in Heaven dear Lord

Please pick a Bunch for me.

Place them in our Brother’s arms

And tell him they’re from me …his siblings

Please tell him that we Love and Miss him

And when he turns to Smile, Place a Kiss upon

His cheek

And Hold him for a while…

Because remembering him is Easy….

We do it every day…

But there is an ache within our hearts that will

Never go away…

In Loving memory of our Brother

Victor Borisenko
