A man of courage, living everyday the way he believed
He loved his wife, she was his guiding star
Devoted to his children, each the best and the most important
Every one he met was special, a man of deep faith

His life was too brief, how often does one this great come our way
Generosity was a strength, he looked for those in need
He cared for his church and his church family
Joy on the journey was his creed

Work was important and he worked with excellence
His vigor legendary, his service herculean
All around us are things he created, marvelous
We will miss his guiding hand so much

A strong shoulder
Listening ear
Quiet strength
He loved a good laugh

A helper, a leader, a shining star
His presence brightened the room
His care encouraged and strengthened
He wanted to help others

Never first in line but first to pay
Didn’t demand his rights but would fight for yours
Lived his life with power from Christ
He was God’s man first and last

Epic, significant, servant
A great man who loved the Lord with all his heart
He passed our way and called us friend
A blessing from the Lord, We loved him and will desperately miss him

We will see you again my friend
We won’t forget you
We will carryon with you in our heart
Adios, good bye, shalom

Punctual particular prescient
Useable useful
Listens closely to God
His whole life a service to God

Never sidetracked
His work a joy
A family man
Deeply loving and beloved

You wouldn’t know him
He does what He does for Jesus and not fanfare
His vision is to do as much as He can for Christ
His history spells it out-Jesus is God’s everything

We can’t use his name
He insists it is all about Jesus
Christ is his all and in all
Everything he does is because of what Jesus has done in him

He is blessed and a blessing
He and his family march in obedience to Christ
Jesus is Lord in their life
We pray for him and them-constantly and with gratitude

I grew up there-with lions and tigers and bears
Mysteries abounded-yet it sheltered me from the unknown
Deep in the recesses of my mind-it is a place I’m known
And loved
Throughout victories and defeat-I was welcomed as me
Warts and all it was where I belonged

Something happened as a teenager
I roamed-seeking new places
How to belong
Wanting to make my own way-to build a home
Make someone belong
Together we made our way-husband and wife

Children came, jobs and age went by
Our home, our place
Wanting to provide what we once had for our children
Acceptance and forgiveness are important
Listening without criticism, we love, they count
Christ in our hearts shaped our life and guided us in leading our family

Home is where the heart is
Christ has my heart, now when I hurt I run to Him
He reaches out and forgives me I need this the most
Jesus encourages me, loving me thru my remorse and fear
That loathing of self that sin brings-Jesus loves me
I belong to Him, my heart seeks His shelter, I belong
