In Loving Memory

Tomorrow (Wed., Feb. 22, ) would have been the 85th birthday of the first man I fell in love with — my father — John Willie Taylor!

Daddy . . .

I thought of you with love today –
but that is nothing new
I thought about you yesterday –
and days before that too
I think of you in silence,
I often speak your name
Now all I have are memories –
and your picture in a frame
Your memory is my keepsake –
with which I’ll never part
God has you in his keeping –
while I’ll always have you in my heart.
