You have been gone a month and I miss you so much! I wrote this about you for your funeral and read it then and was reading it today. I think I will post it so that others can remember what an incredible man you were so here goes:
The Value of a Man
What words can describe the value of a man? How do you say the words to fit the essence of him?
How do you announce his legacy to his children, their children and their children's children?
That his legacy is:
The love he gave so freely
The traits of giving and caring
How he was respected and gave it back.
By being a honest man, a proud man, a humble man who lived by his values and passed them on to us.
He was a self-taught man, and said his best memories were of his family-always!
Dad loved the outdoors and his mountains. He left this world just around the corner from where he was born and raised.
What value do you put on a man?
Who lets you tell him your dreams, and he listened?
Who would hold you when your heart was breaking?
The value of this man is that he is still holding us, because that is what a Dad and Poppie does.
Sometimes, it was filling the shoes of others who let us down, but HE never faltered.
We miss him already.
So, what words can describe the value of a man?
There are no words, He just is!!!!
