He made all of us a part of his life
One day at a time
Thru joy and strife
Changing our sights to heaven’s gates

We admired his strength
He was a man of God
Listening to God’s voice
And walking in it

Doc cared for people
He appreciated their differences including those who opposed him
He listened to us
Our differences didn’t scare him-he still respected us

Life was a special joy
He lived it fast and hard
Never fearing twelve hour work days
Or twelve hour drives

There wasn’t anything soft about him
Except his heart
He guided losers to the winner’s circle
He wanted everyone to hear about Jesus

Not enough words to explain him
He loved his wife and children and us
Life with Doc was first class
He was Jesus ambassador on earth
