Home is where we have our history,
Began our traditions,
took our rites of passage.
It was where we were first loved,
First safe, first found to be special.
It was where we were sheltered and nourished,
Then equipped and sent on our way.
Throughout it all Dad, you sat visibly in our midst.
We feel your blessing on our lives,
helping us to see the beauty
and opportunities for our futures.
Sassy's Dad on the left, Larry's Dad on the right.
William M. Herrington and Alvin L. Emmons
A father's love is like a grand oak tree
Standing strong against the forces of time
Standing against the wind blowing free
Waiting for the children to climb.
A father's love is like a bird in the sky
The flight is long and full of fears
Taming the winds that are on high
Watching for anything to come near.
A father's love is everlasting
It persists even if wrong is done
In his eyes nothing is too great
And no time is too long.
A father's love will not die
His love will continue even when he is gone
His love will touch many Through his Daughter or Son.
