For many long years, he patiently sat,

Devoted, loving, and kind to the last;

Unselfishly gave whatever he had,

To make one of us happy and glad.

He knew, long’fore we did, that he

Would soon go home across the sea:

A homecoming there, for him would be

Father, mother, sister and one baby.

And so with calm, unfearing tread

Our father walked straight on ahead;

He clasped with happy, eager hands,

By Jesus, led to that happy land.

The Tribune wishes to offer heartfelt sympathy to the bereaved family.
