Letter to My Dad in Heaven


They say there is a reason

They say time will heal;

Neither time nor reason

Will change the way I feel.

Gone are the days

We used to share,

But in my heart

You are always there.

The gates of memories

Will never close;

I miss you more than

Anybody knows…

Love and miss you everyday

Till we meet again

Always & Forever

To Mrs Reed,Wife Leanne and family ,my sincere condolence to you all for your lost.
Walter was a kind gentle,giant who was very respectable young man.
He will surely be missed and I know it will take time to get over the fact that he is nolonger with us.
My prayers are that God would give you strength to endure this transition but in due time it will get better but in the mean time , I'll continue to pray for you and family.

Called me.
