    To my Brother "Ridgely"... I love you so much and my heart is sadden that I will not be anymore conversations where you are doing the talking and I'm doing the laughing. You have gone on to your eternal resting place. It gives me solace to know that you're at peace. You were someone special and so close to my heart - it's hard to accept that we have to move apart. There is a special gift in life that some of us receive; It's not a fancy car or house or a brilliant jewel to wear; No, that very special thing is a person, near and dear, Someone we call "brother", the greatest gift of all! Rest in Heavenly Peace my Brother-Noble Brown!
