To the Biggest man I ever knew.

A man who worked hard everyday.
Loved his Family, worshipped his wife.
Fussed and Fumed over his not always diligent sons.
Worried about his daughters.
Loved us all with undying devotion.
Not a rich man by worldly means.
His legacy being wife and children.
His Richs, Love of life.
A big man, though some could call him short.
Strong of will.
But tender of heart.
Many an hour, many a day.
He toiled to help
young children in need.
A ride to a hospital.
A ride to the Circus.
A ride to the Doctors.
Fund raisers he would work.
Until his own crippled feet would sorely hurt.
To complain was not in him to do.
I know, all this to be true.
To barrow a phrase from my brother.
For I am one of his not so diligent sons.
Don't do as I do.
Do as I say.
was one if his favorite sayings.
None of us boys were much good at heeding such sage advice.
When my days are counted up and the tally is due.
I hope I have lived by the example made by you.
In memory of my dad, James.
