    I have been sitting here with tears in my eyes looking at the one of his school pictures and thinking. I wished we had those days back. When we would go to grandmom's to play and go fishing riding bikes and just playing mischief, exploring and worryering our parents when we would ride our mini bikes everywhere. Those were the darn goo old days. I will really miss you and love too you too. I found this poem it makes me think of you. R.I.P. Stevie til we met again and ride our mini bikes off in the sunset.. The Loss Of A Cousin © Collette N. Alaniz My eyes filled up with tears as I heard the news It never occurred to me, how much I could lose I find myself wishing that it wasn't real Every time I think about it, pain is all I can feel Tears fall from my eyes, I can barely see But my heart tells me that he'll always be with me I’m glad he feels no pain now-he lives in a perfect land I can still feel the soft touch on my shoulder of his loving hand I lie in bed and cry at night And I don’t feel any better in the morning light And I will love and miss him forever Until the day we are again together. Together in that perfect place above, Filled with caring, sharing and love But until that day comes- I will wipe my tears away. And hopefully see him again someday
