#GAVINPACKARD Gone but never ever forgotten. #RIPGavinPackard
An ode to a brother from another mother.


Heaven had called upon you today, leaving so many words left to say.
By then in 2012, t'was too late, for your time had come.

Words unspoken - I am sure everybody has some.
Regrets and wishes are probably there too,
but lasting forever are memories of you.

Your family especially your younger brother Daryl Packard was there when you needed a place to stay,
just like you would be there for the them night or day.

There may have been many times that you disagreed,
but you both were there for each other in times of need.

Now it's time yet again for us to say goodbye,
until we all meet again in heaven to fly.
