As we look back over time We find ourselves wondering .Did we remember to thank you enough For all you have done for us? For all the times you were by our sides To help and support us .To celebrate our successes To understand our problems And accept our defeats? Or for teaching us by your example,The value of hard work, good judgement,Courage and integrity? We wonder if we ever thanked you For the sacrifices you made.To let us have the very best? And for the simple things Like laughter, smiles and times we shared? If we have forgotten to show our Gratitude enough for all the things you did, We only sime to remember that get to your room now young man and don't come out until you learn something or that good old do you think money grows on trees. We're thanking you now. And we are hoping you knew all along, How much you meant to me to me even if I didn't show it enough. Rest in piece Mom tell dad and the rest of the family that your now with that we miss them and one day we will come visit them too
