My dad

Date Written: November 15, 2017

My dad wow what a man, always eager to lend a hand.  

He'd take the shirt right off his back, but if you did wrong he'd cut you no slack. 

Wise beyond his years, usually a smile from ear to ear.

Although you couldn't see it from all the hair on his face, bright red and all over the place. 

His statcher not big but don't count him out, if you needed anything he'd be there no doubt.

He'd stand up for what he knew was right, I've seen him get pissed off and ready to fight.

Most would say I'm just like my dad and that's just fine with me, what a roll model and a friend to so many. 

My dad was a goer, a doer a get the job done, if it's not complete there's no time for fun. 

A hard worker, honest and true, I don't think there's anything he couldn't do.

His farm and cows such an important part of his life, but you should have seen him glow when he talked about his wife. 

Us kids he taught us to work hard, take pride in all you do, get your hands dirty, be tough and no matter what don't ever give up. A little bit of dirt never hurt. 

Stand up for what you believe in even if others think it's not right, don't back down and always be prepared for a fight. 

Trust and love is something you learn, stand in line and wait your turn. 

Even with our hearts broken, we will always remember the wise words he once spoken. 

Dad we will take good care of mom she's in good hands, we will continue to do cows and your farming plans.

My dad, my hero, my mentor, my best friend will for ever be missed by so many. 


Daddy's lil girl,
