Still seems like yesterday

The Patriarch,
My Daddy, Our Daddy
One and Only True Dad;


One like a million
Towering in death
As you were alive;

Forever remembered
Forever loved
Forever missed.

"To live in the hearts of those you love is never to die" - Thomas Campbell

Still can’t believe that you’re gone
Absent in the body,
Yet present with us daily in our hearts;

Still can’t believe it’s already five years
Yet still feels like yesterday;

You loved numerous things, Dad

If we could give everything you loved to have you back
We would
But we surrender to God Almighty
who knew best to receive you in His bosom

You lived a great life Dad
And we’re grateful for you
and the fourscore-plus years you were on planet earth;

To God be all the Glory
For in quiet confidence was always your strength;

The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years; ... Psalm 90:10

Glad you don’t have to worry about COVID-19,
Nor about the ongoing unrest;
As a Justice of Peace (JP),
I know you would have participated in the peaceful demonstrations,
Or called all parties together for a dialogue.

May your goodwill
Continue to reign and be cherished forever;
May your legacy never wane;

Your shoes are so hard to wear
The vacuum so hard to fill
We’ll continue to do our best
For you taught us well;

. . .

Say hello to your son, my brother, our brother OM
For we miss you both so
No one can your place take;

Forever remembered
Forever loved
Forever missed

Love you Daddy, our Patriarch!

Continue to rest in perfect peace.💙💙💙💙💙
