Our diamond in the rough, you taught us the way,
To smile and chuckle, and to seize each day.
We will miss you our child, our brother so dear,
In our hearts and our thoughts - you will always be here.
Whisper to us strength, and kiss us gently to sleep
Look down and guide us, your love of life to keep.
Memorial donations may be made to the North Lamar High School Band.
