This is dedicated to the father of Courtney Jae and Caitlin Jae Gagle
And my Son-In-Law Brian.
A person doesnít have to spill his blood on a foreign shore
to show courage, nor scale the highest peak to prove his strength
all he has to do is be a Father
I admire Brian, for his strength and courage as he displayed
his Fathers heart during the loss of his twin daughters to a fatal condition
at only nine months of age.
During their final hours their Father Brian, on whoís chest they lay,
feeling the relaxing and comforting rhythmic beat of their Fathers heart as theirs slowed to a stop. During their final hours, Brian their Father, cradled them.
A week apart they left his presence, then to go through two funerals a week apart, and to take on himself the role of coffin bearer, as he carried both of his babies
coffins, from the Chapel to the Grave.
There are very few times a man stands taller than when heís
A Father!

With the weight of the world on his chest he did what he knew was best. Some Father's should be so tall as this one must be.

Thankyou for sharing this Kenneth.
Fathers get short changed so often these days. There is no boundry to a father's love.
