A Final Farewell to Al for Terry

Although I did not get the chance to know Al my thoughts and prayers are with the family during this difficult time…:)

A Mixed Bag

EDIT:
This poem is for Terry’s brother, Al who was taken by the angels at 08:30 this morning. 
My thoughts are with Terry and her family at this time.

Terry asked me to write a poem to say goodbye to him. You can find Terry’s blog here.

Al suffered from MSA – Multiple System Atrophy which is a “neurological disorder that affects adult men and women. It is caused by degeneration or atrophy of nerve cells in several (or multiple) areas of the brain which can result in problems with movement, balance and automatic functions of the body such as bladder and blood pressure control.

You can find more details on Multiple System Atrophy here and here.

Farewell

As my brother I have loved you
For all of your fifty-eight years
We have argued and fought
Brought each other to tears

I would never change…
