There's someone I love, I never forget,
How he brightened a frown
when someone was down;
Many smiles he would bring
when he'd walk through the door,
And hum an old tune or dance on the floor.

A Jack of all trades, he was known for them all,
And never said no when somebody called;
For someone in need he always found time,
With a heart made of gold, this brother of mine.

This brother of mine, the blood of my blood,
From me he did part, but not from my heart;
His memory lives on and will always be near,
To his family and friends by the stories we share.

Many years of his life he worked on the sea,
While making a living for his family;
A husband so good and a father so true,
A brother so kind who was there for us too.

In the garden of love in peace may you rest,
For your life here on earth you gave it your best;
Your presence we miss
and the warmth of your smile,
But love never ends for this brother of mine.

This brother of mine, the blood of my blood,
From me he did part, but not from my heart;
His memory lives on and will always be near,
To his family and friends by the stories we share.
His memory lives on and will always be near,
My love will not end... for this brother of mine.

From Wikipedia:
Jack of all trades - phrase in common use during the 17th-century, generally as a term of praise for someone who knows enough from many learned trades and skills to be able to bring his or her disciplines together in a practical manner. 'Jack' in those days was a generic term for 'man'.
