He will be missed by family and friends.
“Let’s GO!”, might be his say.
Only sleep would prepare for the next day.
Engaged to a task was a daily routine.
Discipline and commitment the result to be keen.
A wavy stache presents a stern look.
Only caring and loving was there to be took.
On horse with his nature and love for outdoors.
Good chance he was thinking of his next chores.
Goodbye to a good man, father and friend.
Your long sunset l’m sure will not be the end.”
