" In Memory Of
Danny Ray
Kennedy Sr.
"Timе We Had
You make us happy when we’re sad.
We think of you when times are bad.
You were there when we needed a
hand.
Wouldn’t turn loose until you knew
we could stand.
I miss the gentle sound of your
voice.
And how you guided me to make the
right choice.
You make us happy when we’re sad.
We think of you when times are bad.
I stare at pictures to see your smile.
I miss our talks its been a while.
I remember you letting me chew
your Redman,
While you ate beans from the can.
You make us happy when we’re sad.
We think of you when times are bad.
I miss hearing you pick a tune.
l wish you didn’t have to go so soon.
I miss all the good times we had.
I miss my Popaw, I miss my Grand
Dad.
Written by grandson,
