You can shed tears that he is gone.

Or you can smile because he has lived.

You can close your eyes & pray that he will come back, Or you can open your eyes & see all that he left.

Your heart can be empty because you can’t see him, Or you can full of the love that you shared.

You can turn your back on tomorrow & live yesterday,

Or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday. You can remember him, & only that he is gone, Or you can cherish his memory & let it live on.

You can cry & close your mind, be empty & turn your back,Or you can do what he would want, Smile, open your eyes, love & go on.

We’ll miss your laugh & smile, the fresh produce you shared & the housecoat! Love from your neighbors on “The Ponderosa”
