For VERNON “Big V” VAN NATTA
Jan. 12, 1944 - June 20, 2004
Vernon passed away in his home
surrounded by his family on Sunday afternoon, after a long courageous fight with cancer.
I should’ve taken the time,
To walk around and find your place,
So I could’ve said one more hello
And said one more good-bye.
Now, I know it would’ve been
My last hello and my last good-bye,
Since Sunday afternoon you died
Surrounded by your family.
You’ve been here for me
And my family for over twenty years.
We’ve known each other since I was born,
You were the one I followed
Around through the church
And respected so highly,
But yet I couldn’t take the time
To say one more hello
And one more good-bye.
I seen you and hugged last year,
But I never said the words
That should’ve been said.
You spent so many years, looking for the cure.
The cure that would take away your pain
And let you live, the cure for cancer.
You found the cure that is pain free
And gives you all the peace you deserve.
You never found the cure to let you live on Earth,
But instead you found the cure of eternal life.
It’s so comforting to know
That you’re walking the streets of gold
And you’re no longer in pain.
Rest in peace, my friend...
