Brent and his lovely wife,

Poetry, Encouragement, and Love
Piece by piece he fades away
ALS has brought decay.
Muscles, nerves all start to fail
He's locked inside his human shell.
His brain is sharp, his eyes are bright
His spirit is his guiding light.
From the outside looking in,
My undying love only grows for him.
My heart aches, as he grows weak,
A slient tear rolls down his cheek.
He fights to stay strong as long as he can.
As he slowly walks, he takes his children's hand.
In their eyes he's the worlds greatest dad.
The strongest and most loving any kids ever had.
And to me he is the most precious gem
I've never met another like him.
He's changed me so, he's made strong
I thank God he's let me be with him this long.
ALS came from outta the blue,
And grabbed the strongest man I ever knew.
They do their best their hearts are pure
But the financial world dictates to all
If your hearts will rise or if they'll fall
A lota people just don't seem to care
But then again they've never been there.
And until you see a loved one shrink away
You don't realize the price is worth the pay
But our faith in God and a cure is strong
We just hope it doesn't take too long
He still has dreams, things he wants to do
Please Dear Lord make his dreams come true

When I Heard of Your Illness
I wanted to reach out and touch you
so you'd know I 'm right here.
Ready to help you anyway I can
You must be receiving so many messages from
Those you have loved and cared for
all your life.
People want to find the right words to touch
your heart in the way you have touched their's.
Instead of talking I'd like to listen
I won't say I know how you feel, because I don't.
but I know how I feel,
I feel lucky...
Lucky to have you in my life.
Most of all I know your faith will strenght you.
God is with you every step of the way.
He will be your best friend and support
....so don't be afraid to lean on him now.
With all my heart and soul I will love you forever
"YOUR LITTLE SIS"
