Goodbye Tim

GOODBYE TIM The time has now come To say goodbye to you Death was unexpected The good Lord only knew Your soul was already gone When your body was found It will sure be a lot different With you not being around Just to reminisce and think of The memories we once shared A few of my favorites to recall And to show how much I cared We went to the same high school Not knowing each other back then In 1991 we were finally introduced By Howard, our good mutual friend Bonding immediately at first sight Married off and on within 20 years We had lots of fun sharing projects With laughter and even a few tears You were very smart with knowledge In plumbing, electronics and such You could sure fix or repair anything To perfection in all you would touch We never had any children together As some of mine were mostly grown You did take on the role as step dad Since you didn’t have any of your own The project of most fun done together Was the Halloween maze entertainment Your God given talents got to shine With so many who found enjoyment In our divorce we departed as friends Lasting forever for you to count on me Now that you’ve been called to Heaven You must have new projects for eternity I’ll remember everything you taught me You would’ve been a good teacher too Mainly I will always value your friendship So just for now this is my goodbye to you Florence McMillian (Flo)
