As We Look Back

As we look back over time

We find ourselves wondering…

Did we remember to thank you enough

For all you have done for us?

For all the times you were by our sides

To help and support us…

To celebrate our successes

To understand our problems

And accept our defeats?

Or for teaching us by your example,

The value of hard work, good judgment, courage and integrity?

We wonder if we ever thanked you for the sacrifices you made.

To let us have the very best?

And for the simple things

Like laughter, smiles and times we shared?

If we have forgotten to show our

gratitude enough for the things you did,

We’re thanking you now.

And we’re hoping you knew all along,

How much you meant to us.

Rest in Peace Captain.
