Farewell to the man I love
When I was sitting out on the deck last night I noticed a single star. With the clouds so thick you couldn't see the moon, I knew it had to be you, and although I miss you so much I realized that you weren't gone at all. In fact you are and always will be alive in our hearts and memories.
I can see you tinkering with your candles, riding on your harley and constantly building something. You lived to be outside, you were happy most any place, it didn't take much, a butt and a beer in your hand and you were good to go.
You found plenty to do, enjoyed simple things ,like hanging out with your kids or spending time with your grandchildren, walking the dog and brewing beer with David. The stories you used to tell. It was worth millions to you.
That little smirk on your face, the thumbs up and your constant jokes gave everyone a good laugh, we always waited to see what you would do next.
We had special days and special times, from just a quiet moment like sitting by the fire, to partying, riding motorcycles and going to nascar races.
You liked to tease and give everyone shit, and you would not stop till you got a reaction, then you would be happy. That was just you and you never changed.
We didn't have much money, but you would say, just look at what we have, our family, each other and doodle dog and the old cat!
What a man this man of mine.
So to our family I say look around, thru our memories you will see that he has not left us, that he waiting just beyond the moon, he is our shadow and we shall never walk alone again.
