In loving memory of a beloved husband, devoted father and loving papa, who passed away 13 years ago today October 23, 2006. The Day God Called You Home God looked around his garden, And He found an empty place. He then looked down upon this Earth, And saw your tired face, He put His arms around you, And lifted you to rest. God's garden must be beautiful He always takes the best. He knew you were suffering, He knew you were in pain. He knew that you would never, Get well on Earth again. He saw that the road Was getting rough, And the hills were hard to climb, So he closed your weary eyelids And whispered, "Peace be Thine" It broke our hearts to lose you, But you didn't go alone. For part of us went with you, The day God called you home. ~Anonymous Forever loved so deeply missed by wife Pat, children Carla (Len), Greg (Melissa), Cathy (Brent) and grandchildren Isabella, Benjamin, Julian, Matthew, Adrian, Thomas and Brady.
