Father and Son Air Vertical

My fathers who art in heaven

I humbly honor your names

Without perfection and yet with love

You taught me of our Father above

You gave me life

You showed me joy

The path you walked

Made a man out of a boy

Though filled with struggle

And sometimes pain

The way you lived

Brought many gain

Your love for Jesus

And my love for you

Is all that matters

Until we meet in the blue

So thank you, my fathers

For being you

{I wrote this to honor the memory of George Bubna, Al Battles (my father-in-law), and Frank Mayo (my stepdad) who are now a part of that great cloud of witnesses.}
