Sorry folks for not being on here as much as I should be.Been living in Oregon for going on two years now,its been a busy two years!!!!
Sorry to also say that my Pa' In Law pasted away last month,he wanted to be at home and with his family,we met that request!!!
Pops(Jim) had a military funeral(Korean War Veteran,Navy)....And was lead to the cemetery with 21 bikers guarding the hurst and Ma' In Laws car...........With two bikers in the lead with the American flag............Lead with taps and bagpipes at the service at the cemetery,with the 21 gun salute...
Jim will not suffer anymore and is in heaven doing what he loved to do-walking,fishing and hunting.....Miss ya' Jim and God Bless....

Here are a couple poems I wrote for Pops.............


The final farewell......



All the trees of green

The plush grass like pillows

The silence of life

Only the breezes from the wind

The birds singing their song

I knew this was the place

... For the best man I ever knew

Be with your fellow "Mates" Pop

Enjoy your cruise on the ship

No battles to fight

No enemy to meet

Just your family

Your military and veteran brothers

And friends

Enjoy your peace Jim Huff

Grab your fishing pole

Pitch a tent

Go catch that "Whopper".......

When I came to the end of my journey.
And I traveled my last weary mile.
Remember to smile.
Remember of the good things I've done.
Also remember I've had loads of fun.

Sometimes I fell by the way.
But remember I fought some hard battles.
And won.
Forget to grieve for my going.
I wouldn't have you sad for even a day.

But always remember the place where I lay.
Stand for a moment beside me.
As the sun slowly passes down.
Remember only my best.

I glance to the sky.
With music up above.
Jesus has prepared my room.
For my internal life to be.

I leave my footprints behind.
As I walk the trail a head .
With the sun showing off its colors.
Yellows oranges and reds.

Remember the joy,the laughter,
I gave you.
The comfort when you needed it the most.

I lived a good life.
With a million miles of memories.

For my family and friends,I say to you.
Grab one or two of these memories.
Put them in your pocket.

Smile and remember the good thoughts.
Thats how I want it to be.

There will be times when you will wish I was back.
Just remember this.
I'm in the other room.
The one God made for me.

So sorry to hear of his passing. Great poems too. It reminded me of my dad.those two were much alike.
If God had a refrigerator would your picture be on it.
Remember the Ark was built by amateurs, the titanic by professionals.
