He was a father, a son, a husband, a soldier, and a friend
A man of few words, but full of laughter with a smile as bright as the sun
We will always remember his jokes, his laugh, conversations, fishing with
him, and watching basketball games
Though his time with us was short, we will never forget how strong he
was even through pain and sorrow
As we move on with our lives,
Just promise you won't forget, a man of pride and dignity, a great man
we called "Al"
By Dysherrika Wester (granddaughter)
On that day
On that day, I brushed your hair
Felt movement in your chest like you knew I was there
I propped you up on your pillow for you to sit up and see
Everybody who came in and stood beside me
On that day I spoke to you just as I always did
And even though you didn't respond, I knew that you were listening
On that day I didn't get to busy or put up a fuss
About the family I care for and who mean so much
I heard the blues in my mind while I sat there with you
My thoughts drifted away and I saw you dancing in my view
I heard you talking noise, and fussing around the house
Talking about Nick, a lot of laughs and bumping about
On that day I felt like you would rise up to talk again
But on that day, God punched your card and opened the gates
Life is a stopping place, a pause in what's to be
A resting place along the road to sweet eternity
We all have different journeys, different paths along the way
We are all meant to learn some things, but never meant to stay
Our destination is a place far greater than we know
For some, the journey's quicker, for some the journey's slow
On that day, when the journey finally ends, together with the
LORD life no more, LIFE without end...
Here’s what’s next.
