TO SERVE AND PROTECT

 

As Bob reaches heaven

Gods holding the gate

No masks needed here

And a hug would be great

 

Puts his arm around Bob

And walks him inside

Son I’m proud of you

You had a hell of a ride

 

You and Marty  

Were an inseparable match

Social distanced never

She was quite the catch

 

Though her memory faded

Her love never died

She appreciated the simple   

Adored being your bride   

 

You were her “Belleman” 

You handled the load

Laughed at her silliness

wore what she sewed

 

Norwood your home

Family your grace

Hard work and integrity

You always embraced

 

Blessed with grandkids  

That are amazing and grand

And family trips to the beach

Filled your hourglass of sand

 

To Serve and Protect

That’s what you believed

You made a great life

With all you achieved

A Brotherhood with Keith

A Traveler with Ken

Karen Your shining star         

And Colleen your comedian J

 

Your kids they adored you

They honored your name

They respect what you stood for

you deserve their acclaim

 

Their gratitude unending

Their stories a hoot

The memories are priceless

The pictures …a tribute

 

It didn’t take a detective

To know what they need

You loved them all

You planted the seed

 

6 feet apart no longer

No more rules to adhere

Forever in their hearts

You’ll always be near

 

To “serve and protect”

That is what you’d do   

God hands him his wings

Said your job is not through

 

Stay close to them all

And watch from above

With your quiet demeanor

Let them feel your love
