March 27, 1948 – March 22, 2016
Dad, our memories & love for you, for Mom and for Tom, carry us through life’s journey every day. Your memories should never have faded as you valiantly fought your final battle…
We sat along your bedside,
our hearts were crushed & sore.
We held your hand to the end
’till we could do no more.
In tears we watched you sinking.
We watched you fade away,
and though our hearts were breaking,
we knew you couldn’t stay.
You left behind the aching hearts
that loved you most sincere,
we never shall, we never will,
forget you… Father dear.
