Jun 2016
You were a good man
I wish I'd thanked you more
You may not have sketched out this plan
Now you walk along that golden shore

Along the edge of the glassy sea
Outside of time and space
One day you'll give us the nickel tour
As we grow accustomed to your new face

We will know it's you right away
From the way you welcome us all
With your oh so familiar laugh
And your West Virginia drawl

And you'll regale us then
With the deep things you've derived
Hand in hand with the author of life
Between 2016 and the day we arrive
The father of my sweet Diane, and Papaw to my kids, has gone on to his eternal reward.Β Β He will be missed.Β Β 
He was a terrific father-in-law...and friend.
