Loss of a Friend

Family friend, Bob F., died of cancer this week. He was funny, kind, loving, smart, joyful, and a great dad. He left behind a wife, five children and their spouses, and three grand-children, all of whom lost him way too early. He was only 62.

From "I Hope You Dance" by Lee Ann Womack

I hope you never lose your sense of wonder,
You get your fill to eat but always keep that hunger,
May you never take one single breath for granted,
God forbid love ever leave you empty-handed,
I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean,
Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens,
Promise me that you'll give faith a fighting chance,
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance,

I hope you dance... I hope you dance.

I love when one finds words that describe a life...beautiful song.
He will surely be missed.
