In loving Memory
May 30, 1998
Pa, many times I’ve needed you.
In life I loved you dearly,
In death I love you still.
For in my heart you hold a special place,
That no one else can fill.
Love your little sweetheart Katie.
If all the world was ours to give, we would give all and more to hear your footsteps and see your smilig face come through the door. We have cried an ocean of tears for you. In our hearts you hold a special place no one will ever fill.
Your family and friends speak of you. They talk of you with happiness and special memories.
It broke our hearts to lose you, but you did not go alone. For part of us went with you the day God called you home. If love could have saved you, you never would have died. Each thing you’ve touched along the way has a hollowed spot inside.
Pa, you went first. And I remain. I ask you to do one thing. Walk slowly down that long, long path, for someday I will follow you. I want ot know each step you took so I may take the same. And some day down that lonely road, you’ll hear me call your name.
Sadly missed and greatly loved by wife, children, grandchildren, sister, niece and nephew
