My dad passed away a year ago today.Posted: January 29, 2013
There hasn’t been a single day in the past year that I haven’t wanted to talk with him.
He is the best man I have ever known, or ever will know. If you knew him, you would say the same. I am proud to be his son.
Now has come the departing time
And here you must no longer stay;
But there is no comrade of thine
That will desire you were away.
Of all good times that e’er were shared
You leave us happy memory;
And for all the friendships that e’er you had
They fondly will remember thee.
I raise to thee the parting glass
And drink a health whate’er befalls
Then gently rise and softly call,
“Good night, an’ joy be to you all.”
