We have our lives,
our moments we might recall.
We have our loves,
our desire to be understood.
We have our time,
some may respond destiny,
another might suggest a plan,
in every aspect of our being,
we do design our world
without knowledge of a span.
I knew a man, I know a man,
I know a grandfather, a beautiful father,
a friend, a laughter,
a certain genuine kindness in Man.
He gave his heart to all of us,
in reflection will we think of him,
in a manner without all the fuss,
his peace is now in the hands of Him.
-in dedication to the life of Jimmy Gullickson, our friend
