I did not know him as a boy
My older brother Roy
He was a young man and a father by the time that I was born
I grew up with his children, as he watched us run and play
And every smile that he gave brightened each and every day
We shared a love of OUR father, Ray, who brought us all together
Who taught us love of family is Always and Forever
Although this is goodbye for now, my memories full of Joy
Forever in my heart you'll be My Dearest Brother Roy xoxo

Roy had his family and friends up to to the common room at his building in Richmond Hill one New Years day. He put out a big spread and decided he would put a pot of mulled wine on the table with a propane heater under it to keep it warmed. Just as I was pointing out that the whole thing was under a fire alert the alarm went off. The loudest most sustained fire alarm I've ever heard. All the elderly tenants came down to the engines arrived by what seemed the dozen and in the midst of this Roy managed to disappear.
When the alarm was shut off and Roy given a mild lecture his guests promised him they would be sure to tell this story forever.
And so I am !
