Angel Wings

[dedicated to my grandpa - forever in my heart]

A special pair of angel wings
Were handed out today
He left this world and flew to Jesus
Forever there to stay

He was a man of honor
A gentleman was he
The life he lived was testimony
For all the world to see

A husband and a father
Grandfather and friend
He'd have given all for his family
And loved them to the end

The tears we cry are not for him
We know the place he's gone
There's no more pain and no more tears
As he sings the angels song

We have many a fond memory
The joy he brought was great
But now he sits at the feet of Jesus
Where he'll watch for us and wait

Yes, a special pair of angel wings
Were handed out today
He left this world and flew to Jesus
Forever there to stay

    I love this so much! I can tell you this. Through your tribute I was allowed to see the smile on grandpa's face. It was not so much the wings that pleased him.... He smiled in recognition of your love expressed in your caring words... Jake
