                                                                                         For Dad


                                                                        He never looked for praises

                                                                         He was never one to boast

                                                                   He just went on quietly working

                                                                     For the ones he loved the most. 


                                                                    His dreams were seldom spoken

                                                                           His wants were very few

                                                                    And most of the time his worries 

                                                                               Went unspoken too. 


                                                                   He was there....A firm foundation

                                                                      Through all our storms of life

                                                                         A sturdy hand to hold on to

                                                                                In times of stress and strife.


                                                                              A true friend we could turn to

                                                                             When times were good or bad

                                                                              One of our greatest blessings

                                                                               The man that we called Dad. 

 

All arrangements and services are under the direction of the Lea & Simmons Funeral Home in Brownsville, TN.
