From His Loving Wife

February 25, 2022

I wish we All could have

a little piece of him,

because Each and Everyone of Us was

a little piece of him.

All the stories that he told

you heard them once or twice

I had the privilege to hear them

almost every time.

We are the stories that made his life

the things we did for Fun

Each of you has your stories

I have Everyones.

I got to hear them many times

His smile it always shone

I know we were with him

the day God took him Home.

Thank you for the Memories,

His Loving Wife

for Forever and A Day
