Dad

He came in like a lion


And went out like a lamb


A loving gentle good-bye


As I held his soft warm hand

His children Greg, Lucy, Steve, Don, Doug, Bill, and I


Were his pride and joy


Loved by all who knew him


Every man, women, girl, and boy

He would sit and watch "his horses"


As they trotted up and back


Most of them Standardbreds


Rescues from the track

Portuguese Pioneers of the Sacramento Area


That was his book


If you haven't read it yet


You really need to look

He loved to play Scrabble


Each and every day


Two or three games with us


He was the best, I must say

A very fine example


Of what a man should be


Always put family needs before his own


Loving man... it's plain to see

He mostly watched sports


Heather and Thomas watched with him


When his team would lose


He would seem a little grim

Tiffany would hang out


Bring his favorite stuff


She cared for him for hours


The loss of him is rough

Matt would talk about history


His mind was still so clear


Being alone would scare him


That was his only fear

As the great-grandkids called him


We doted on "The King"


Dad's whole family sought out the peace


That living on the ranch would bring

The grand and great-grandkids


Were fortunate to know our Dad


As everyone knows here today


That's why we are so sad

Until we meet again, My Rock
