    Just want to let Sarah and Emma know I’m thinking of them both now. To lose both parents at such a young age is devastating. Love you both and my deepest sympathy ❤️

    Poem for Dad - REMEMBER ME
    Speak of me as you have always done.
    Remember the good times, laughter, and fun.

    Share the happy memories we've made.
    Do not let them wither or fade.

    I'll be with you in the summer's sun
    And when the winter's chill has come.

    I'll be the voice that whispers in the breeze.
    I'm peaceful now, put your mind at ease.

    I've rested my eyes and gone to sleep,
    But memories we've shared are yours to keep.

    Sometimes our final days may be a test,
    But remember me when I was at my best.

    Although things may not be the same,
    Don't be afraid to use my name.

    Let your sorrow last for just a while.
    Comfort each other and try to smile.

    I've lived a life filled with joy and fun.
    Live on now, make me proud of what you'll become.

    He never looks for praises.
    He's never one to boast.
    He just goes on quietly working
    For those he loves the most.
    His dreams are seldom spoken.
    His wants are very few,
    And most of the time his worries
    Will go unspoken, too.
    He's there...a firm foundation
    Through all our storms of life,
    A sturdy hand to hold onto
    In times of stress and strife,
    A true friend we can turn to
    When times are good or bad.
    One of our greatest blessings,
    The man that we call Dad.
