TRIBUTE TO MY LATE BROTHER, JULIAN ADAM SAWYERR

HELLO MY FRIEND-GOODBYE MY BROTHER.

You came in to light our path when it turned dark after our Dad said goodbye. Little did we know that your hellos and kisses were also your goodbyes.
You sparked the evening in the church with your farewell poem to our Dad. Your fontonfrom drumming still resonates in my ears.
Time and space separated us for a long, long time, but thanks to the Almighty we were reunited; proving blood is thicker than water.
We had so much in common, and very few around us could understand our engineering jargons. We played and loved music and could chat all day about beats, trends and renditions.
Our project on electrics cars have stalled and it will be difficult to find another with your ideas and expertise.
I’m in a state of denial, but the reality in downing on me gradually. I know this is an interlude, for we shall definitely meet again to catch up and continue from where we left.
Goodbye my friend, goodbye my brother.

Julian was a lovely man, who always showed respect and kindness to all. He made maria a very happy woman, likewise she made him a very happy man. They made a wonderful couple. He will be sadly missed. Memories of him will remain In our hearts. My heart goes out to maria and all the loved ones he has left behind. But Take comfort in the bible account that their will be a resurrection, so you will see him again in perect conditions right here on earth. Acts 24:15 & Revelation 21:4 . Xxx

Today we say goodbye officially to a man that we only knew for a very short period of time, but a person who made a significant impact on my wife and I.
Julian was an infinitely kind and generous man and I am confident that several of his other neighbours would say the same.
He especially helped me in practical terms offering to do things around the house and showing me how things should be done properly. He was a very thorough man.
A popular quote from him that I will always remember...one that he was taught by his grandfather "mark thrice, cut once".
I can still hear his laugh and see his smile, even now.
He leaves behind a kind and generous woman in Maria, and our hearts goes out to her and all the family and loved ones at this sad time.
Goodbye Julian and thanks for everything.

With Love from Robert and Samantha.

A bud, this is the way you always greeted me in the 19 years we've known each other.
You have been the greatest friend in my life and the closest I could call a brother. In the time, conversations, contracts, running partners and times we shared laughter and other issues it was always good to chat.
Before you met the one greatest love of your life Maria, you always talked of your children and family Amelia, Serena, your Mother, brother and his family. You were a proud and great friend and progressed greatly as the years passed, not just in achieving a higher education and more responsibility in bigger contracts, but in life in general.
You gave me the biggest honour of my life when you asked me to be your best man, something that I will treasure forever.
You always sent me your latest in music that you composed to ask what I thought.
Jules mate you will always be around in my memory and your spirit will live on as long as we all remember.
See you on the other side brother.
