Happy Birthday Daddy-O
Tuesday, November 15, 2011
Today is my Dad's birthday ..if he was still with us he would of been 78! Here is a poem I wrote for him !
MY Daddy - O
My dad was a very handsome man!
He also was bitter, angry & funny!
But he had a big heart and a gentle soul too!
He wanted a large family that’s exactly what he got!
Three daughters, four sons, fourteen grand children and
Two great grand children now that’s a lot!
When his grand daughter Lexi was born he said
“She is so beautiful”!
He loved being around his grand children and
Talking about the guys from work!
He also loved doing wood working and
Making things for others!
His biggest hobby was collecting Lionel trains
And John Deere stuff too!
In the last five months of his life he was so very ill!
My little brother and I took turns taking care of him!
Some times that was so stressful but we didn’t care!
The Lord had taken him away on a cold winters day!
I miss him so very much, but he is with my mother now!
I will see you again some day, My Daddy-O 1-14-08
