So God Made our Brother
When Erin was born, I can remember him on the changing table. His older brother Darrell and I we’re taking care of him one night. He came into this world with a shining smile, which was simply a delight.
- So God made our brother.
He played with us, worked with us, and grew up with us in our tightly knit farm family. And he shared a unique connection with us all. He was the baby of the family, and exactly 14 years younger than our oldest brother to the day.
We taught him how to ride a bike, brush a horse, show a steer, drive a tractor, and truck. He was quick to learn and handled things with general care. We may have fought with him, but I can’t remember it ever.
- So God help us raise our brother.
He knew the importance of helping others, sacrificing his time every step of the way, and lending his talents freely… He helped his mother to construct her dream addition to her house, yet never asked to be paid. He loved serving those who he worked for – the residents at the senior home until just last week. He helped them in their late stages of life, to assure they enjoyed every day…
- So God made a Man out of our brother.
He was humble, kind, fair, and honest, committed, and never held a grudge. His temperament was calm, and he often chuckled about the trials and journeys in life. He got a kick out of other’s actions, and their decisions in a humorous way.
- So God made Man of Character, out of our brother.
He was a devoted and loving husband, through thick and thin, and through the ups and downs he put Jane first and supported her all along the way.
- So God made a Husband out of our brother.
He was a devoted father being highly engaged with his kid’s activities, teaching them the virtues, values and lessons of life. Spending days, months and years supporting Nicole’s passion for showing horses, and Steven’s passion for hockey.
- So God made a Father, out of our brother.
He developed a strong relationship with the Lord going through life. His faith grew deeper as the years went by. He was involved with church, its members and leaders became his close friends.
- So He made a Man of God, out of our brother.
This past week God was ready for our brother – as fast as it was. He’d raised him, groomed him, put him through the trials of life – yet God had a plan for him at the end of his earthly life.
- So God looked down on the earth and called our brother home… to eternal life.
Today, Erin looks down us with that smiling grin, a chuck and a laugh knowing that his time on earth was full to the brim.
We love you Erin. And until we meet again … God bless you!!
Shawn, Darrell and Brian
