In Honor of a Life Well Lived

Today we honored Daddy with this stone and fresh flowers.

It was the least we could do for the man who taught us so much.

The man who loved us so much.
The man who gave us so much.
We are grateful to have loved and been loved by him.

*For the reciter of poems,...a poem

A kind hearted man
stood in his backyard
feeding his young dog 'Bo',
When he heard the call of a Mourning Dove,
that soft cooing sound he loved so.

He remembered the joy,
he felt as a boy
when Mourning Doves gathered in trees,
to sing just for him,
a lone country boy,
so happy and easily pleased.

Daddy, you continue to inspire us!
