In seven weeks, centenarian I’d be
But my Lord and Savior’s calling me now
Of this world, I shall be forever free
 
Unto dust, asleep I’ll be, ‘neath the plow
Till the day I wake to meet my Maker
In the clouds of heav’n where all angels bow
 
A life well-lived, that’s what I was after
To seek God’s counsel, in all that I do
I hope I have pleased my Lord and Master!
 
He’s calling me! I see the sky so blue
I see my loved ones; I see them flash by
All my five children, and my dear wife too
 
With love and a smile, I whisper goodbye
And close my eyes humming a lullaby!

A poem dedicated to my father-in-law who passed away today, seven weeks short of his 100th birthday. May we all be so lucky to live the life he has lived, as a favored child of God.

@Vic: Thanks. Really something isn’t?
Who knew? I am totally unprepared for this job to be honest with you. I declined it when Brod VerA broke the news to me over the phone couple of weeks prior to the meeting and again declined during my nomination and election. But I was overruled. It was me all seemed to agree. My moment I heard. It was my moment alright of embarrassment as I was dumbfounded and speechless such that all I could say was “OK, I need your help, from you all.” What a day it was. The food.was good though, been a long time since I had Filipino dishes even though there’s a Pinoy Restaurant near where I live.

Wow he lived to see his hundredth year of life. Amazing. I know you'll miss him, but I trust knowing he lived a full life is a comfort, and having known the Savior no more to be said.
