“Ode to a Boy that was given to us by some miracle; He was a joy to us with his child wisdom; as he grew into a very caring and giving man. Oh what a journey, starting with walking, riding bicycle, learning, school and wrestling, and later riding horses, bulls and motorcycles, tractors, combines, trucks and cars. But, oh my, how it went so fast, Love to you, Our Boy!”
