This picture was taken the summer before Brent died.
Brandon and Brent coached a girls softball team, it happened to be Brandee's team. There was more sibling rivalries on the field than runs!!!!
Brent-first one on back row, Brandee is next to him, Brandon is last one on back row.
This is the last team Brent coached.
Brent was the coach of this biddy basket ball team a few months before his death.
The peaceful place that I know and love
Lies up in the sky above.
It has streets of gold and mansions all around
These lie on sacred ground.
I plan to go there when my life is done
Others will go if they follow the Son.
The Son is a loving, compassionate and caring man
He teaches us how to live and how to take a stand
Although sometimes we backslideand get out of line
He forgives us and tells us "Everything will be fine."
In our times of trouble and fear,
You may not see Him, but He is near.
At other times when you feel alone,
He will be your stepping stone.
If only you would let Him in,
He would change your life from beginning to end.
Whenever you die and go to that peaceful place
Only then will you see the Son's face.

When tomorrow starts without me, and I'm no longer there to see;
If the sun should rise and find your eyes, all filled with tears for me.
I wish so much you wouldn't cry, the way you did today,
While thinking of the many things, we didn't get to say.
I know how much you love me, as much as I love you,
And each time you think of me, I know you'll miss me too.
But when tomorrow starts without me, please try to understand,
That an angel came and called my name, and took me by the hand.
And said my place was ready, in heaven far above,
And that I'd have to leave behind, all those I dearly love.
But as I turned to walk away, a tear fell from my eye,
For all life I'd always thought, I didn't want to die.
I had had so much to live for, so much yet to do,
It seemed almost impossible, that I was leaving you.
I thought of all the yesterdays, the good ones and the bad,
I thought of all the love we shared, and all the fun we had.
If I could relive yesterday, just even for a while,
I'd say goodbye and kiss you, and maybe see you smile.
But then I finally realised, that this could never be,
For emptiness and memories, would take the place of me.
And when I thought of worldly things, I might miss come tomorrow,
I thought of you, and when I did, my heart filled with sorrow.
But when I walked through heaven's gates, I felt so much at home.
When God looked down and smiled at me, from his great golden throne.
He said, "this is eternity, and all I've promised you"
Today for life on earth has passed, but here it starts anew.
I promise no tomorrows, but today will always last,
And since each day's the same day, there's no longing for the past.
But you have been so faithful, so trusting and so true.
Though there were times you did some things you knew you shouldn't do.
But you have been forgiven and now at last you are free.
So won't you take my hand and share my life with me?
So when tomorrow starts without me, don't think we're far apart,
For every time you think of me, I'm right there in your heart.
