For Dad……

To be heard,
without saying a word,
To be hugged when
I’m feeling blue,
To be understood,
when I’m confused,
So rare was a
Dad like you,
Your loving crooked smile, and gentle laugh,
Made all the difference
in my day,
Your endless wisdom
and timeless advice
Always helped me
find my way,
In you, there
was no equal,
You were in a class
all of your own,
And because of all the love you gave me,
I’ll never be alone,
It’s an honor to
have known you,
To have shared
stories and dreams,
I’ll always be thinking
of you smiling,
No matter how tough
life seems,
You’re still special
beyond compare,
Your heart so kind
and true,
I wish that everyone
could have such a
Dad like you!

This tribute was lovingly written in honor of Jackie by his family.
