A Man Who Loved His Family
Our Dad was one of those special men
Who truly knew what life was about
Who demonstrated that his family came first
For his actions left no room for doubt
Our Father’s greatest joy was his children
In fact, there was no faster way
To light up his face with an ear-to-ear smile
Than the mention of his own children’s names
He preferred to discuss the accomplishments
Of his children, rather than his own
And loved to recall the sweet memories
Of our youth and how we had grown
He was a Father who often tucked us in bed
Told bedtime stories, then turned out the light
Reassuring us he’d always be nearby
If we ever needed him at night
A Father who loved to be near us
Who took us on family vacations
The rock of strength we came to rely on
Through the challenges and trials life gave us
And we understood how blessed we were
To have this type of Dad
A Father who cared for us above all else
Willing to give us all he had
There are many things that could be said about Dad
For he was a man of goodness, honor, and trust
But anyone who knew Dad would also remark
On the deep and committed love he felt for us
So as we say goodbye and we remember ALT. Phrase: So as we pause to remember
Our Father’s life…the man he came to be
He’d be happiest being remembered by all who knew him
As a man who loved his family
