Upon reading a fine poem about loss-
Title- I loved you, daddy
You left us a little at a time because you were one tough man. You made eighty-four years on this planet, with a sixth grade education. You were known for strength and your honesty and you went from derrickman at nineteen to driller quickly, then to toolpusher, running the whole drilling operation, then to consultant to major oil companies, taking the first drilling rig into the North Sea and making it work and then to owning your own consulting company with ten to twelve men scattered all over the globe. With a sixth grade education. I'm mentioning these accomplishments because I know how hard you worked to achieve them.
What I really want to say is how much I loved you, daddy. We were like fire and ice in lots of ways; it just worked out that way. I'm sorry I didn't have enough tolerance for your ways and that you didn't have enough for mine. You helped make me the man I am and I'll never forget you. You're in my heart to stay and I know you felt the same way about me. If souls do ever meet, ours will, and all will be as it should have been here, on this planet. If not, we know. Jerry Andrews
