December 6, 1940 ~ November 25, 1992

In these 20 years we've learned,
You can shed tears that he is gone,
Or you can smile because he lived,
You can close your eyes and
pray that he will come back,
Or you can open your eyes
and see all that he has left.
Your heart can be empty
because you can't see him,
Or you can be full of the
love that you shared,
You can turn your back on
tomorrow and live yesterday,
or you can be happy for
tomorrow because of yesterday.
You can remember him
and only that he is gone,
Or you can cherish his memory
and let it live on,
You can cry and close your mind,
be empty and turn your back,
Or you can do what he would want: Live, Laugh, Above All Love!

Your Loving Family
