A name is pride honor and family
is shoulders to cry on and
Memories are everything once forgotten.

Kentucky is childhood roots and summer
is board games truck rides leaving but knowing that
Christmas is plaid jackets popcorn tins and tradition.

May 9 was AP test no more studying
and a phone call
is changing lives in those short minutes.

Pain is black dresses good-byes and realizing that time
is spending every minute with people you love and
Hugs are favorite cousins tears and escaping that pain for a brief second.

Grandpa was God Grandma CNN basketball Yellow Flowers
respect loyalty taking care of loved ones hard work and
I’m memories tradition and trying to live up to
that name that is pride honor and family and everything
he was.
