    Dad-
    You will be in my heart forever. What a precious and loving father you were to me. Here is a poem I have written in your memory:

    DAD

    I will miss you.
    The history, the story,
    The days of our glory
    Back when.

    I will miss you.
    The ways you encouraged
    When I was down hearted.
    And helped me get started–again.

    I will miss you.
    No ounce of intention,
    No measure or mention
    Can bring you back now.

    I wade through the pain.
    There’s nothing to gain.
    But glad in the knowledge
    That you rest in peace.

    I feel a new calm
    Knowing you are with Mom.
    In this I move on.
    But I miss you.

    From clutter to clear.
    From distant to near.
    You’re unique.
    U–nee-quu!
    Yes, I miss you.

    “Praise God!” or “Be damned!”
    You outstretched you hand.
    There’s no choice I have
    But to miss you.

    Mr. Man About Town
    Your jokes are renown
    Retold until new
    And I miss you.

    I entrust you to God.
    To His House–Our Lord.
    All the while with a heart
    That will miss you.

    Allelujah, amen
    Allelujah, again
    Allelujah, dear Dad
    I will miss you!
