Kenneth Deron Brooks July 6, 1985- October 14, 2010 "Mama's Baby Boy" Still Missing You They say there is a reason They say that time will heal But neither time nor reason Will change the way we feel. For no one knows the heartache That lies behind our smiles, No one knows how many times We have broken down and cried. We want to tell you something So ,there won't be any doubt, You re so wonderful to thihk of But so hard to be without. We cannot bring the old days back, When we were all together The family chain is broken now, But memories live forever. We love you, Kenneth. Shirley Holley Cogburn Julie E. Brooks Hollie R.
