Favorite Quote:
And one day, the girl with the books became the woman writing them.

Tissues in your pockets

Almost unnumbered 

With a smile on your face 

And a gentle embrace 

You took on the world.


You loved the fall colors 

All the yellow and red 

You would walk through the leaves 

With three layers of long sleeves

But just two in July 


With a pie on you birthday

And your wife by your side 

And your notebook in hand

For the plans that you had

To spread God through the world.


And just imagine the greeting

That they gave you in heaven

For a man who loved Christ

‘Cause you spent your whole life

Showing God to the world
