In Loving Memory
Brett Lawrence Berlant 
Aug.10, 1975 - July 22, 1995 
Three years have passed and we miss you so much. 
A day doesn't go by that you're not in our thoughts. 
Life goes on, but it's awfully hard. 
You live on in Scott, he is so much like you. 
Aimee feels you're around looking out for her too. 
You were brave and tough with all you went through. 
Yet through it all you would never complain. 
Your `heart of gold,' with us, will always remain. 
You asked for so little and gave so much. 
We wish you were here to give us `some sugar' and thumbs up! 
We will love you forever! 
Mom, Dad, Aimee and Scott
