Tribute to Charlie A Farewell to Charlie By: Wendy Smith How do we say goodbye to a man who has perfectly filled so many roles, From Husband to Father, and Friend to us all How do we say goodbye to a man who has given us so much, From companionship to encouragement, laughter an love How do we say goodbye to a man who has opened his heart so wide that we each feel a special bond with him
A man whose love for us has never wavered A man whose easy going ways and fun loving spirit has never been compromised A man whose will to share life with us has never failed Until God could no longer wait
Our dreams for him were to wash away his pain and heal his wounds Our hopes for him were to stand beside us for decades to come And eventually, our prayers for him were to be gently taken with care, While he sleeps
How do we say goodbye to a man that means so much to us? With tears in our eyes, heavy hearts, wonderful memories and The knowledge that we will be with him once again, when we too are called home So it is with everlasting love and gratitude that we say Thank You Charlie for being a part of our lives Thank You Charlie for touching our hearts and Thank You Charlie for being exactly who you were You will truly be missed!
