Another MM Warrior in heaven..........



                                                         For Bob                        

God gave you the strength of the mighty oak
He blessed you with the warmth of the sun
You received the energy of the raging wind
And your laughter he threw in for fun.

Your hair like snow covering a mountain
Your eyes blue as the sky above
He gave you a smile that could light a room
And a heart overflowing with love.

You were blessed with wonderful talent
God gave you a sense of design
Forever you’ll be remembered
By the legacy you’ve left behind.

We’ll remember you loved to travel
So many sights we were able to see
You had a sense of adventure
And a love of history.

Your shop was your place of solace
You loved NASCAR and state football
Golf was a favorite hobby
But love of family topped them all.

You’ve been a perfect role model
For our family through the years
We’ll cherish the lessons you taught us
As we wipe away our tears.

Your side of the bed now empty
No one in your favorite chair
How can I live without you?
We were the perfect pair.

You’re our own special angel
Watching us from above
Thanks for the years you gave us
Thanks for the unconditional love.


With all my love, Sarah

  4. Thank you all, so much. He was my honey for over 54 years.....and even though he had MM.....I really just never expected him to go!! Finally, there is no more pain, no more suffering....except on this side!

  5. I followed your blog for awhile, but moving around I got disconnected, but then re-aligned... and saddened to hear your news. It must be comforting to live in a place where his energy is still so present, but I know you must miss him dearly. May these days ahead bring your comfort from family and friends and sharing their love of him with you... distant hugs.
