Dad had many friends, too many to mention them all. They are not forgotten, you all know who you are. Dad’s last few days on this earth were spent with his family surrounding him singing two evenings in a row. Dad your family misses you and love you dearly. Dad you left a legacy of music to your family and everyone who knew you. You were always there when we needed you, No task too great or small. With a loving heart and willing hand for us you did them all. Thanks for the years you gave us For the time we shared You will never be forgotten Dad, Because in our hearts You’re always there. God made a father so loving and kind, and we had the honor of calling him ours. It only takes a little space
