Richard M. Reed Sr.


C-Memorial-Reed

In loving memory

Richard M. Reed Sr.

October 9, 1933-January 4, 2004

 

Not how did he die, but how did he live?

Not what did he gain, but what did he give?

These are the units to measure the worth

Of a man as a man, regardless of birth.

Not, what was his church, nor what was his creed?

But had he befriended those really in need?

Was he ever ready, with word of good cheer,

To bring back a smile, to banish a tear?

Not what did the sketch in the newspaper say,

But how many were sorry when he passed away?

 

It’s been 12 years, but we still miss you and think of you everyday.

Love, your family

C-Memorial-ReedWhat makes a Dad?

 

God took the strength of a mountain,

The majesty of a tree,

The warmth of a summer sun,

The calm of a quiet sea.

The generous soul of nature,

The comforting arm of night,

The wisdom of the ages,

The power of the eagle’s flight.

The joy of a morning in spring,

The faith of a mustard seed,

The patience of eternity,

The depth of a family need.

God combined these qualities,

And there was nothing more to add,

He knew His masterpiece was complete,

And so He called it DAD!

 

It’s been 10 years, but we still miss you and think of you everyday.

Love, your family
