November 16, 1997

In loving memory of my dear
father, Andrew, who passed
away November 16, 1997.

What I would give if I could say,
I'm going to visit my Dad today.
To see his face and loving smile,
to sit and talk with him awhile.
But it's your resting place I visit,
I place flowers there with care,
but no one knows the heartache,
when I turn and leave you there.
It broke my heart to lose you,
but you did not go alone,
for part of me went with you,
the day God called you home.
A million times I've cried,
if love could have saved you,
you never would have died.
For those of you who have a father,
give him a hug and treat him with care,
Because the heartache is unbearable
when he is no longer there.

Lovingly remembered, sadly missed
by son Walter.
Rest in God's care while
you rest in my heart.
