Heavens Door

He visits now his mother
His father stands there by his side
His sisters and a brother
Guide him to the shinning light

His days on earth remembered
By those who still remain
We talk about the life he lived
All the love that he once gave

A man who served his country
Was a soldier in our wars
Loving husband and a father
He was a gift that was adored

He faced the end with honor
Like his father did before
Now he goes to be with Jesus
He walks through Heavens door

Poem for my Uncle.

Jan 16, 1949 to May 7, 2021

Our lives were made better by having you as a part of our family.  
I thank you sir for allowing me to be a part of your life and for sharing with me your life stories
May your Wife, Children, Brothers, Sister close friends and all of our extended family,  have peace knowing that the life lived made a positive difference in this world.
Rest in peace Uncle
