    He met Casey one day. Together in Heaven now is where they stay. His soulmate no doubt. Her son is Rob and grand daughter Celest. Mozart his best dog pal. He was one of their pets along with all the rescued kittens and cats that loved dad and Casey so much. Wild birds fed daily and a raccoon on on occasion. Like a adventure to watch some. Good days we always made em.

    He made a living as a Roofer. Diekevers Roofing they paid him. Always stained by the sun . Patches of tar everywhere , mainly on his arm hair.

    Someday after a short wait, I’ll see you at the gate. My hero you are. A soul one of a kind. So original and rare to find.

    Thunder and lightning crack in the night. Mornings beautiful light. One less man here today. One more child, in God’s arms to stay. Rockin a byin. Our Father , Im so glad for him to see him. We bow our head’s to cry , with our hearts aching , his absence not makes you feel unfamiliar to this place. It is only you and I who cry. Dad’s still with us. All around in every space . Pay attention , take notice . I promise he wants us to be aware to comfort us in knowing he’s good in this place. It’s an awwww kinda nice.

    Rest now Dad I love you
