There are lots of husbands in the world

But now and then you see

One who kind of sets the style

Of what husbands ought to be.


One whose special qualities

Make him stand out in the crowd

And whose kindness to his family

Makes them awfully pleased and proud


And Honey, I feel happier

Than I ever hoped to be

Cause the nicest man in all the word

Is the one who married me!

Love your wife, Sharon


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 2 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
