I don't know the key to success. However, the key to failure is trying to please everybody. ~Bill Cosby

He was an honorable, good man.
He lived his life,
He didn't plan.
He drove a truck,
He fought the fire.
He lived freely when
The straits were dire.
He was a diabetic,
Type two.
And no doctor could tell him
What to eat or what to do.
He loved the Lord,
With all his heart.
Even when life
Pierced him like a dart.
He made us laugh,
He made us cry.
He was my best friend,
And he didn't even try.

My Grandpa died of a stroke on Sept. 22, 2013. He really understood me. He was a firefighter, on the days he was off he drove trucks. In his "spare time" he built a house, in the middle of nowhere. He was also a farmer. I don't know how he did it. All I know is I loved him dearly and will never, ever go a day without thinking of him.
