"We were blessed"

by Robert J. Thompson
(Dedicated to my Father)

You were a father, a husband and a great friend,
Although, you were also so much more.
Kind, comforting and genuine,
It is you, so many adore.

You worked your way through high school, without any family near.
Yet through your life, you forged true friendships.
That are treasured, and oh so dear. 

You never knew you were loved so.
Or thought you were “the best.”
For knowing you, it’s all of us who truly have been blessed.

On Oct. 21, 2010, we lost my father, three short months after being diagnosed, to Glioblastoma Multiforme.
