The Best



We had the best

In husband and Dad.

Now our hearts remain so sad.

Before you left we made you a promise,

That we would be okay,

This is what we pray each and every day.

You were the one

Who was always there-

To tend to our needs and cares.

You were proud of our children,

And how good they were,

From youngsters to grown adults

This is for sure.

Our family knows

You were so great,

Now we deal with our fate.

You are still with us,

In so many ways,

Going on without you,

Makes for sad nights and lonely days.

We miss you very much,

And now your are in God’s care.

Our lives with you,

Were the best that anyone could share.

June 2013
