Daddy, much too soon you left,
Leaving your family so bereft.
I know you didn't want to go.
Oh, Daddy how I miss you so!
Your voice no longer will I hear,
And that alone brings many a tear.
Your loving hugs I'll also miss,
I won't forget your gentle kiss.
A man of principle and pride
You remained until you died.
A life lived with integrity
Will be your lasting legacy.
Rest in peace my dearest Dad.
I'm thankful for the time we had.
Your earthly journey now is through,
But I will never stop loving you.
Dedicated to my dad, Earl Horger, Jr
who passed away 6/27/2013
