For My Father-in-Law

Howell Burkes, A poem for his Funeral Service

Loving Dad & Grandpa

Whenever I next think of you

I’m sure to see your smile

I’m sure to hear your laughter

In my heart


Though many angels hold your hand

And walk by heavenly streams

I pray that you still visit me

In memories and dreams


Your quiet strength will be my guide

When tears get in the way

Forever in my heart and mind

Your love will always stay

Father-in-Law as a toddler

Howell H. Burkes ll
