His legacy
He Left His Legacy In All Of Us  
When we talk of daddy's legacy, We think of all the great things he did.
I feel daddy's legacy lives on today, It lives through the eyes of his children. When we do things as daddy taught us, or when we speak kind, and caring words to everyone, as he always did.
I think of Danny, and how he loved daddy, and all the things daddy taught him, I think of Teresa, Joy, Bill, Myself (Sherry), Benji, and Danny. How he loved us as his own, and the wonderful traits he taught us, How he taught us, You don't have to be the real father. As long as you are a real daddy, and he was.
Then he was blessed with Hollie and Kristie. And again, He was daddy. Even though we knew he was so proud of those 2 girls. He never left us out.
I think his legacy was shown by all the people that came to pay thier last respects to daddy. And when we were all in line to carry him to the grave that day. Cars were lined up as far as you could see. And I was so honored to have this wonderful person for my daddy.
I still see him, When I walk into the house, I see him in Diane, as she talks of thier times together, and how they loved each other for 30 years. I see him, in each of us. When we share funny stories of him. Or the times he showed his unconditional love for us, in some special way. Or when he talked of his family members with so much love, and was so proud of even our smallest accomplishments.
I think daddy's legacy will live on forever, through his family, and friends.
Daddy, what a wonderful legacy you have left behind for us to learn from, and most of all. We can cherish it forever. We are so proud to be your children. And we will carry your legacy with us forever.

THE ANGELS  

THE ANGELS  
Did the angels come from heaven  
to help you through that night?
Did they feel your terror  
And take away your fright?  
Did the angels bear the pain  
That was being done to you? 
Did they hear your cries of fear  
And stayed to help you through?  
Did the angels hold you tightly  
The way I would of done?  
Did they know how I would feel  
And wish they were the one?  
Did the angels cry out loudly  
For the unjustness of your plight?  
Did they call Lord Jesus  
And lead you to the light?  
Did the angels softly kiss your cheek  
Before you took your leave?  
Did they remind you how I loved you so  
And forever more I'd grieve?  
Did the angels whisper in your ear  
Don't worry you will not go alone?  
Did they know part of me went with you  
The day God called you home?


If Roses Grow In Heaven...  

If roses grow in heaven,
Lord please pick a bunch for me
Place them in my Daddy's arms
And tell him they're from me.
Tell him I love him and miss him
And when he turns to smile,
Place a kiss upon his cheek
And hold him for a while.
Remembering him is easy
I do it every day,
But there is an ache within my heart
that will never go away.



We Only Wanted You...  

"A million words won't bring you back,
we know because we've tried.
Neither will a million tears,
we know because we've cried.
You left behind our broken hearts,
and happy memories too.
But we never wanted memories,
we only wanted You."


God Saw He Was Getting Tired...  

God saw he was getting tired
And a cure was not to be.
So He put His arms around him
And whispered, "Come with Me."
With tearful eyes we watched him suffer
And saw him fade away.
Although we loved him dearly,
We could not make him stay.
A golden heart stopped beating,
Hard working hands to rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us
He only takes the best.


My Talk with God...  
I said,'God, I hurt'
And God said,'I know'
I said,'God, I cry a lot'
And God said,'That is why I gave you tears'
I said,'God I am so depressed'
And God said,'That is why I gave you sunshine'
I said,'God, life is so hard'
And God said,'That is why I gave you loved ones'
I said,'God my loved one died'
And God said,'So did mine'
I said,'God, it is such a loss'
And God said,'I saw mine nailed to a cross'
I said,'But your loved one lives'
And God said,'So does yours'
I said,'God where is he now?'
And God said,'Mine is on the right
and yours is in the light'
I said,'God, it hurts'
And God said,'I know'

DO NOT STAND AT MY GRAVE AND WEEP  
DO NOT STAND AT MY GRAVE AND WEEP
I AM NOT THERE, I DO NOT SLEEP.
I AM A THOUSAND WINDS THAT BLOW;
I AM THE DIAMOND GLINTS ON SNOW.
I AM SUNLIGHT ON RIPENED GRAIN;
I AM THE GENTLE AUTUMN'S RAIN.
WHEN YOU AWAKEN IN THE MORNINGS HUSH
I AM THE SWIFT UPLIFTING RUSH 
OF QUIET BIRDS IN CIRCLED FLIGHT.
I AM THE SOFT STAR THAT SHINES AT NIGHT.
DO NOT STAND AT MY GRAVE AND CRY.
I AM NOT THERE,
I DID NOT DIE.
