Its been 13 years since my Brother -n-Law Larry and my 14 month old nephew Chad (My sister’s husband and son) passed away (July 15,1998). To this day it still pains me and I think about them everyday. I often wonder about what life would be like if they were still here: Larry with a super nice car blasting his music and having even better gadgets than me, lol. Chad would be 14, probably taller than me, playing basketball…..
I cant help to imagine but I know the longer i think about it, the sadder I become…..
Not too long after they passed i wrote a poem about Chad for his 2nd birthday May 6, 1999. I think I was 17 years old. I even did a poem on video for my T.V. Production class in high school.
Heaven’s Angel is Cheerful, Joyful
The Sweetest Child you can find
Its no wonder Heaven’s Angel is a Nephew of Mine
He was 14 months Old
And bringing joy to each and every soul
with his cute little smile
and his Heart of pure gold
with soft braids like Bone Thugs
And resembling both his mom and dad
He’s Heaven’s Angel
And his name is “Baby Chad”
God’s most precious Angels
come once in a lifetime
Heaven’s Angel is “Baby Chad”
And he is a Nephew of Mine
