The Tree of Life
Mom, Dad and Big Brother 
Austin J. Berres January 13, 2002 – February 9, 2002 
In the Tree of Life
Our Roots are forever intertwined.

With their Last Breath
The one we have greatly loved
Does not say goodbye,
For love is timeless.

Instead, the one we greatly loved leaves us
with a solemn promise…
The one we greatly love will continue
To be present to us
Whenever called upon.

Let us not grieve.
…Beyond letting go…
For in the tree of life
The one we greatly Love and Our Roots
Are forever INTERTWINED.
