ARMAND 1934-2001



He died as he lived
Without making waves
Without fanfare
A simple man
A humble man
A loving husband
And devoted father
A man of principles
Of integrity
A dreamer
A macgyver
Determined
To live with integrity
And harmony
At peace with both
Living and dying
Ready to meet His Maker
Leaving with a promise on his lips
To keep a watchful eye over us

Beautiful eulogy, for your father I presume. "A macgyver" - I am going to have to look this up, unless it is a last name?

Thanks, Caren, for your much appreciated visit and comment. I'm sure you will love the word and adopt it. It was made popular by the TV series. It refers to someone who is creative, inventive and innovative.
