I thought of you with love today
But that is nothing new
I thought about you yesterday
And days before that too,
I think of you in silence
I often speak your name
All I have are memories
And your picture in a frame
Your memory is my keepsake
With which I’ll never part
God has you in His keeping
I have you in my heart.

In Loving Memory Dad
He never looked for praises
He was never one to boast
He just went on quietly working
For the ones he loved the most.
He dreams were seldom spoken
His wants were very few
And most of the time his worries
Went unspoken too.
He was there…A firm foundation
Through all our storms of life
A sturdy hand to hold on to
In times of stress and strife.
A true friend we could turn to
When times were good or bad
One of our greatest blessings
The man that we called Dad.
