A prayer for my brother whose addiction to alcohol killed him

I hope to be able to read this at my brothers funeral, it is so fitting I think.

May your spirit soar in freedom
From the fears that gripped so tight.
May you find the peace you searched for As you wandered, lost, in the night.

May your tortured mind be clear and calm And your tender heart be
May you have no need for strength now.
May there ne'er be another storm.

May the music of the angels
Be the sweet sounds that you hear.
As you're rocked in Heaven's cradle
May you ne'er shed another tear.

We'll wear your memory proudly,
Our brother...our true friend.
May our love for you reach Heaven above Until we meet again.

My FIL was an alcoholic and died 10 years ago, in his early 50's. He was a lovely, intelligent and warm man with a terrible addiction he just couldn't overcome. That poem would have been perfect.

Sorry for your loss.
