Obituary Condolences

Haydon, Steven Charles
I've never been one for tributes or ceremony. There will be no memorial service. If you feel you must do something, donate to an animal shelter or buy a book for someone. Maybe hoist a drink in my name once in a while. That'll do nicely. So...here is the ending of my book: As I turned my head to the side, my eyes were open yet unseeing. My mind, however, was racing. Racing to say goodbye to those I loved. I traveled miles in an instant - thousands of miles to kiss my beautiful three sons one last time. I'm so proud of the men that they've become. I'm so thankful that they gave me two granddaughters and two grandsons that have been my sunshine even when my world had sometimes seemed bleak. Then I traveled back to my home in the desert. I don't have much time now, but I need to kiss my two sisters goodbye. Their faith, love and support for me has been unflagging and unwavering. A final squeeze of my hand for a brother who can be too much like me for his own good. Thank you to husbands and wives of those close to me. I love you all more than you'll ever know. The lights are growing dim now. I hear the beautiful sound of the voices of my mother and father in the distance. I exhale one last time and finally find peace.
