Joseph N. Hurst 1924 - 2013
Thursday, August 08, 2013
The funeral service was a wonderful tribute to your Dad's life. Hearing the story of how he played on the first football team for the U of H was awesome..what a legacy! I've enclosed a poem written by my husband's Aunt Sue. My hope is that this poem may soothe you as you deal with the grief of Mr. Hurst's death. I hope it may bring a smile to your face and gratitude for the time you had together.

When those we hold dear
Are no longer here,
And their physical presence
Is gone,
Their memories flood
Our senses
And we know we are
Not alone.

The things they taught us
And the times we shared
Helped to make us
Who we are
And we carry their legacy
Always,
Whether near to them,
Or far.

Their spirit binds us
Forever,
For they're no more than
A thought away
And the love they gave
Remains behind
To give fragrance
To each day.
