    In rememberance of
    those we love
    and those who are
    gone
    and those who are
    left feeling alone

    In rememberance of
    those who gave
    the biggest sacrifice
    for those who gave
    their life

    In rememberance of
    those we loved and
    lost
    they suffered then died
    what a great cost

    In rememberance of
    those gone on
    who sang a new song
    now safe in God's arms
    where they belong

    In rememberance of
    those who now look
    from above with
    consternation and
    yes with love

    In rememberance of
    my family...the root
    of this now tall proud
    tree...if it were not
    for thee...I would not
    be
    And I will forever remember
    thee!

    RIP
    CALVIN SHEPHERD SR. ......GRANDFATHER
    CALVIN SHEPHERD JR. ........FATHER
    FRANK ANTHONY SHEPHERD....BROTHER
    my main men, now and then!
    BLESSINGS ON YA HOUSE!

    *QUOTE: No pleasure philosophy, no sensuality,no place nor
    power, no material success can for a moment give such inner
    satisfaction as the sense of living for good purposes, for main-
    tenance of integrity, for the preservation of self-approval.

    Thank you for reading!

    Thank you for reading and feeling me on this, I think it is fitting and good for the spirit to "REMEMBER", not just "Memorial Day"
    but each and every day!
    BLESSINGS AND HAVE A SAFE HOLIDAY WEEKEND!
