Thank you everyone who has taken the time to post on this remembrance page. I was never able to meet my Grandpa before he was taken from us. Many of you are officers yourself so thank you for making this a better place. I pray for your families and your safety each night.



I Never Got To...

I never got to give you a hug
before an angel took your hand and gave you a tug

I never got to give you a kiss
before you made your final wish

I never got to tell you I love you
before you disappeared into the sky so blue

I never got to tell you Goodbye
before you got your wings and learned to fly

all these things I wish I did whether by choice or fate
I was too late...
