We all knew that you were one of a kind;
Because you were so genuine…
Even when we were hungry,
You could always pull out some Kool-Aid, cheese, crackers and a chunk of bologna!
You were so passionate about so many topics; especially politics.
And let’s not forget you could make an entire meal using wood and sticks!
You had so many ideas of anything that would float your boat;
Like how you would herd oxen and goats!
Because of this dad, uncle Jr., brother, and friend; we will never bid your spirit adieu,
And for that; we will always love you…
