So sorry John, to hear the news from your mom yesterday. I was doing some shopping at Smithville & wanted to just see that awesome home of yours where you used to chase your brothers with a live lobster. I hope this poem helps a little; I'm dabbling in writing lately. My condolences to your wife & family; you're certainly in my prayers old friend.
A child's smile's worth more than gold no greater joy can we behold
The love you gave your baby girl will last and last beyond this world
Your love pours out but in it goes and so she blossomed like a rose
No measure cup could ever hold the joy she gave such pride's untold
Another world's beyond this place more beautiful than silken lace
It's just a prayer away I'm told and soon again your Molly hold
