My poem and tribute to Tommy Kraus.. Aaron's father and my father-in-law. I enjoyed getting to know him and am truly grateful for his love. Plus giving him grandchildren and a great grandchild that he never thought he'd have in his life. We miss and love you so much Dad. Rest in peaceful slumber.
Funny how life goes on,
We reflect, we dream and wish upon.
Then someone so precious leaves this plain,
which leaves us with tremendous pain.
To the life that was,
to the life that is.
Let the sadness subside,
to bring forth growth inside.
May light engulf the struggling heart,
to know that you truly will never be apart.
