You taught me that a bird
must leave the nest and fly...
that in time, I would leave
and soar towards the sky.
It was your love and guidance
that reinforced my wings...
You lifted me before I soared
towards life's greatest things.

~ A Life Journey ~
 
Today we shall honor Grandfather
Who was a faithful man,
He gave his life to care for others
A hero of this land.
 
As just a lad of seven
He was left alone to fend,
For his older brothers all day
As into a coal mine they would descend.
 
But there the black lung gripped
A raging cough to keep,
So bravely as a mail man, then he toiled
Struggling on a mule up mountains steep.
 
He married his beloved Polly
To become the father of many,
Faithfully laboring
To save up every penny.
 
The years rolled on by
Each child grew and moved away,
To carry on Grandfathers love
So blessed until this day.
 
His sisters and grand daughter were so brave
His last illness they did tend,
As he waited for his home call
They nursed him 'til the end.
 
We, the grandchildren honor the treasure
The love that we have had,
Forever to cherish in our heart
The memory of our great Grand-dad.
 
For now he is happy in his rest
Enjoying delight forevermore,
In eternity where there is no toil
Rewarded on the heavenly shore.

The righteous perish
and no-one ponders it in his heart..
devout men are taken away, and no-one understands,
that the righteous are taken away
to be spared from evil.
Those who walk uprightly enter into peace,
they find rest as they lie in death
