  6. If roses grow in Heaven Lord please pick a bunch for me. Lay them in my brother’s arms and tell them they’re from me. Tell him that I love and miss him and when he turns to smile, place a kiss upon his cheek and hold him for awhile. Remembering him is easy, I do it every day. But there is an ache within my heart that will never go away. Love you, Jeff!❤️ Teresa
