My Grandfather kept a garden.
A garden of the heart;
He planted all the good things,
That gave my life a start.

He turned me to the sunshine,
And encouraged me to dream:

And then the winds and rain came,
He protected me enough;
But not too much because he knew
I would stand up strong and tough.

His constant good example,
Always taught me right from wrong;
Markers for my pathway that will last
a lifetime long.

I'm my Grandfather’s garden,
I'm his legacy.
Thank you Grandfather,
I love you Kyle

Fran, Pat and I were very sorry to read of Jack's passing. We have treasured the friendship which the four of us shared for more than sixty years.

The Gift God Gave Me Was You

I will never say goodbye to you,
because I know this is not the end for us to see each other.
You will only be going to a place where there's no pain suffering.
for you will be with God.
For now we need to go in separate ways.
I remember how your arms held me and give me strength.
You were always there to listen, love, and defend me in everything.
You were my very best friend.
In my triumphs you were always proud.
I'm very grateful and proud to call you my dad.
Here, deep inside my heart you'll always be.
I remember the last time I held your hand and how you looked at me in the eyes.
If only I could turn back the time I would have never let you go.
I felt the world stop and my heart stop beating when they told me you were gone.
Thank you, Dad,
For always understanding, listening, caring, and loving me your whole life.
The greatest gift God gave me was Dad

Love Always, your son
John Jr.
