"is tht a fat joke" (white,black,skinny,short,tall...ect)


Friend, son, father, Brother
He was like, no other
The way that he loved his family
And how he lived so happily
Always there when needed
And when called he speeded
To be there for us,
Hes occasionally did cus,
But we all have flaws
He kept to the laws
He made it threw the strife
That would've broken others
But he stayed true to his color
that made him, him
Even until the end
He was taken so quick
For some of us its still hasn't
clicked
That he is gone
But life goes on
So we play his song
In homage to him
So put up your chin
And look to the sky
And say our Good-Byes
To a soul that passed quickly
But at least he wasn't sickly
He died with no pain,
He did not need a cane
So for that be thankful
I know this is a handful
But lets take it and mourn
For his life was torn
Away so all of a sudden
We have to support his children,
That have just started buddin
So lets remember his name
And the way that he had played this game
It will never be the same
Without you
Always out on the lake so blue
Always telling his children "I Love You"
He was a great guy through and through
