    Remembering My Dad…

    The things that he did
    to show how he cared.
    The sound of His Voice.
    The Wisdom he shared.
    A piece of advice
    I’ll never forget.
    The way that he lived,
    examples he set.
    The work he put in
    to doing things well.
    The Places he’d been.
    The Stories he’d tell.
    His Greatest Success
    that he was proud of.
    His hobbies, His Passions,
    His Laughter,
    His Love….
    When I think of My Dad,
    and everything that made him
    The Man he was,
    his memory lives on through Me,
    And his Granddaughters….
    Kira & Leah…..
    I’m so sorry for His Passing….
    He will be missed so much!!!!
    God Bless You Dad!!! RIP…….
