Thank you Dad, for setting such a great example for your family through your hard work, dedication to our family and service to our country. We are so blessed to have you!
Of all the different kinds of love with which we could be blessed,
perhaps it is our Grandpas love that ranks among the best.
What truly matters most in life, he's lived enough to know
and nothing's more important than to help his family grow.
All the little twists and turns that life has thrown so far,
times have changed alot since then but he's been where we are.
Grandpa knows how difficult adversity will be.
He's had his share of ups and downs and seen what our eyes see.
Grandpa has a gift to give that makes his life complete.
It's wisdom for the life we'll live, a gift that's bitter-sweet.
The years it takes to know such things consumed most of his days.
So little time we've left to learn from Grandpas wiser ways.
To see his family better off because of what he shared,
just knowing even one of us had listened so and cared,
A right of passage draws complete, accomplished and fulfilled
with all the things that matter most, successfully instilled.
The day will come when Grandpa won't be there to see us through
but all the things he taught us still remain forever true.
Just look inside your searching hearts, for there will Grandpa be,
saying "Do your best, stay the course and protect your integrity!"
