Our Dad

Our Dad was steady, Our dad was strong,
He tanned our hides when we'd done wrong,
He loved us all and was always there,
Our dad was special he showed he cared,

Sterling his first born natural son,
He showed you to work til the work was done,
Michael the blacksheep so you thought,
He showed you to sow what you wrought,

Tina and Sandy he took right in,
And showed them a life they had forgotten,
For Bruce and Jan he did the same,
For along with the love of his life these 2 came,

And lets not forget his sisters and brothers,
They made up the Waltons and loved one another,
The family he came from played a big part,
In gifting our dad with a giving heart,

His love for his family could not be hidden,
His love for his grandkids was real, unbidden,
We are all better people because he was so smart,
We lay him to rest with broken hearts,

Our Dad can never be forgotten or replaced,
He's gone home to be with Granny-time would not wait,
And even though we mourn the man and are sad,
Know in your heart he was special because he was "our" dad!
