If i had a son

on july 4th i lost my young son in law through a tragic turn of events.this is my eulogy to him.

He was a golden boy

A handsome lad

A good son

A fearless father

A stanch friend

Loving brother

If I had a son he would have been like you

Full of laughter and light 

A country boys swagger and snappy comebacks

Not my son in blood but the one of my heart

Yes a good son indeed

You wandered this world fearless

Meeting life head on with a twinkle of mayhem in your smile

Staring down the dark burning bright as the noon day sun 

My golden boy with the finest of hearts

I hold you in mine

What a legacy you leave behind

Two young daughters one bright and gay one with mischief in her eyes

She looks like you

So young for such a last journey to be called home

So much life so little time you had

So I sit here remembering storing you in my memory box of laughter and pain

So much more I would have said if I had known loves you moms was to be our last conversation

Yes my son I will call you that

Not of my body but the son of my heart

Twentyfive years your flame burned bright 

You strayed from the path and paid a heavy price

Living life with delight and good cheer that was your way

I celebrate your life with laughter and joy

I am the richer for knowing you my boy

I pay homage to you my son with these simple words of love from a moms heart

I say goodby my son

Your blood mixed with mine

Two little girls with the same twinkle in their eyes

Few can claim such a legacy of love you left behind
