For my heart...

For my beloved friend, Evaristo "Juny" "June Bug" "Junito" Sierra...I miss you so much already.  Your legacy will continue to live on forever.

“We Little Knew”

We little knew that morning,
God was going to call your name.
In life we loved you dearly,
In death we do the same.

It broke our hearts to lose you,
You did not go alone.
For part of us went with you,
The day God called you home.

You left us beautiful memories,
Your love is still our guide.
And though we cannot see you,
You are always by our sides.

Our family chain is broken,
And nothing seems the same.
But as God calls us one by one,
The chain will link again.

We do not need a special day to bring you to our minds.
The days we do not think of you are very hard to find.
Each morning when we wake we know that you are gone.
And no one knows the heartache as we try to carry on.
Our hearts still ache with sadness, and secret tears still flow.
What it meant to lose you no one will ever know.
Our thoughts are always with you, your place no one can fill.
In life we loved you dearly; in death we love you still.
There will always be heartache and often a silent tear, but always, precious memories of the days when you were here.
If tears would make a staircase and heartaches make a lane, we'd walk the path to heaven and bring you home again.
We hold you close within our hearts; and there you will remain, to walk with us throughout our lives until we meet again.

"I’m Free"

Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free
I’m following the path God has laid you see.
I took His hand when I heard Him call
I turned my back and left it all.

I could not stay another day
To laugh, to love, to work, to play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way
I found that peace at the close of day.

If my parting has left a void
Then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss
Oh yes, these things I too will miss.

Be not burdened with times of sorrow
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life’s been full, I savored much
Good friends, good times, a loved one’s touch.

Perhaps my time seemed all too brief
Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your hearts and peace to thee
God wanted me now; He set me free.

Melissa. This is Mary, Juny's sister... I stumbled across this on the internet and had no idea what this was. I just seen my brother's name and I read what it had to say. I wanted to THANK YOU for making my day and putting a smile along with tears to my face... There is not a day that goes by that I don't have thoughts of my Brother... I miss him soooooo much. Sometimes I find myself not believing he is gone. Saturday will be a month of him being gone and even though there are soooo many great memories of Juny, at times I shake my head and wish I could bring him back...
Please take care of you, Richard and the baby. My brother was crazy about your beautiful red curls~Layla and ALWAYS spoke about her and showed off her adorable pictures... God Bless YOU!

Mary. As I write this response to you, with tears streaming down my face...I know! I feel you. I feel your pain. I miss Juny so much and there isn't a day that has gone by where I don't think of him. His memory has claimed my memories. It is hard to think of anything else, other than him. The times we shared. The laughs we made together. The big hugs...I just long for one more. Blogging was all I could do after I learned about Juny that day. It was the only thing that could console me. A day I will dispise forever. A day where God called a lovely soul home. I am still having a hard time with that, but I know better than to question God's Will. But, was THIS God's Will? Did God's Hands take Juny from us? I am still not sure about that? But, I do know that God took Juny's hand that day and brought him home. That is my peace. That is what we are left with. I pray for you and your family. I pray daily. I hope you all, his many beloved friends included, find the peace you need to accept this loss. Comfort knowing he is with the Lord and in eternal peace. I thank you. I thank your family. I thank your mom and dad for giving us such a loving, generous, caring, funny man that I could call, and will forever call my friend. Please know that Juny's spirit will continue to live on. He touched so many lives, and I promise. I will keep him alive. If only in spirit. May the Lord be with you and your family. God Bless you always. Many blessings Mary!
