In Honor or an Amazing Dad

The past 20 years I have been proud to call Frank Ramirez my dad. I remember the first time I met Frank and Sue in December 1987 when Keelee was 3 months old. They came by my mom's house to see their new grandbaby as soon as they found out about her. The accepted her and me in their lives and into their family.

May 21 our family has hit with horrible news. Dad (Frank) we discovered had liver cancer. The cancer was to large to operate and he was to weak for Chemo. After spending some time in Parkland where they took wonderful care of him he went him with the help of hospice. Hospice folks were wonderful and so caring. We want to thank all the friends and family who came over to visit and offered prayers. On July 1 Dad went home. IT was peaceful and very quickly.

We ask that you remember our family in your prayers as we move forward without our dad and grandpa in our lives.

God Saw you getting tired,
And a cure was not to be.
So, he put his arms around you
and whispered
"Come with Me."
With tearful eyes we
watched y6ou slowly fade away.
Although we loved you dearly,
we would not make you stay.
A golden heart stopped beating,
your hard-working
hands put to rest.
God broke our hearts
to prove to us
He only takes the best.

Sandi, So sorry about your loss. He looked like a wonderful man.
My dad pasted away 11 yrs ago and reading that poem brought tears to my eyes. Very touching. Thank you for sharing that......
