    My dear Brother now that you gone you’re no longer here to share, the bond we had together- A bond of love and care.
    You gave no one a last farewell, Nor ever said good-bye. You were gone before we knew it, and only God knows why. A million times we will miss you. A million times we will cry. If love alone could have save you, you never would have died. In life we love you dearly, In death we love you still. We miss you so very much, and our tears we cannot hide, Yet, somehow something tells me you are watching over Chenniss and I.

  7. To Amon & his loving family,
    A man’s legacy only lives on when his family and those he shared moments of joy with, pass them on. The memories of Amon that stuck with me were all positive and great things. I pray for your consistencies with sharing his achievements and memories during the good & bad times ahead. Never forget the things which made not only him but others happy. I pray for you all to have strength and a great understanding of God’s plans throughout his absence. Amon, I haven’t gotten the chance to hear nor be part of your daily lifestyle. I do remember the first and last time we spoke. You were a great man and had an amazing skill. You were a man of positivity which will always be remembered from the conversations we’ve had. It was a blessing to meet you and I hope the heavens bless you with eternal happiness as God promises. Sleep in Peace Brother.

  9. My prayers go out to Mr. Berry and his family. I had the opportunity to meet this great man as we were about to embark on some great work together. He wasn’t able to finish the drawings I needed because he was sick. I will cherish the paintings that I have from him. In the short time of knowing him, he blessed me with his beautiful spirit…. To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord….
