April 16, 1936-November 18, 2010
4 years have passed, but not a day goes by that we
don’t think about and miss you. We are going to love you forever and ever, Amen.
Sad are the hearts that loved you
Silent are the tears that fall.
Living our lives without you,
Is the hardest part of all.
You did so many things for us,
Your heart was kind and true.
And when we needed someone
We could always count on you.
The happy years will not return
When we were all together, but
With the love within our hearts
You’ll walk with us forever.
So, if we could have a lifetime wish
A dream that would come true,
We’d pray to God with all our hearts
For yesterday with you.
A thousand words can’t bring you back,
We know because we’ve tried,
And neither will a million tears,
We know because we’ve cried.
You left behind our broken hearts
And happy memories too,
We treasure all these memories,
But wish we still had you.
So in the quiet cemetery,
Where gentle breezes blow,
Lies a beloved man who left us 3 years ago.
His place of rest we visit,
We put flowers there with care,
But no one knows our heartache
as we turn to leave him there.
Though his smile is gone forever
and his face we cannot touch,
Still we have the memory of the
husband, dad, grandpa, great-grandpa
that we loved so much.
His memory is our treasure
with which we’ll never part.
God has him in his keeping,
But we have him in our hearts.
With love from your family,
Sharon, Debbie, Dutch, Mike, Amanda, Monica, Gregory, Heather, Christopher, Joshua, Jordan, Nathaniel, Zachary, Mackenzie and Adilyn-Grace
