A Poetic Prayer


Heavenly Father

Another soul is on the way. 

Grandpa is his name. 

It’s not the name you call him by. 

It’s just who he became. 

A sacrificial human being. 

With faith in Jesus Christ, 

A precious soul whose loaf of bread, 

Gave everyone a slice. 

So as your angels welcome him

And love him every day. 

Tell him that we miss him so 

And wanted him to stay. 

But we can't over rule your call 

Or change what has been done. 

So we’ll just trust your rainbow's real 

And grandpa's riding one. 

In Jesus Name Amen

The McClain's, The Martin's


HEBREWS 9:27-28


And as it is appointed unto men {once} to {die}, but after this the judgment:

So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.


Jesus Christ was Lord of my Grandpa. 






July 5, 2004


Age 98 of Wyandotte. Beloved husband of Nannie. Dearest father of Sue (Ellsworth) Lyvinsov, Becky Henig, Nancy (Denny) McClain, John (Chris) Martin, and the late Barbara Heffner. Dear brother of James Martin. Survived by 17 grandchildren, 34 great-grandchildren, and 11 great-great-grandchildren. Visitation Wednesday 1-9 p.m. Services Thursday 11 a.m. at R.J. Nixon Funeral Home, 2544 Biddle Ave., Wyandotte (734) 284-1600. Interment Ferndale Cemetery. Contributions to Alzheimer's Assoc. or the Youth Group at Gateway Church of Christ, Southgate.


William Martin (Grandpa) lived at home with his wife Nannie (Grandma) of 75 years until January 2004.   

Grandpa loved God, family, friends, Detroit Tiger Baseball, shooting pool, gardening and fixing bikes.

Grandpa attributed his long life to Daily Bible reading and eating a bowl of ice cream everyday.  As for what kind of ice cream, pick your favorite.

I never heard Grandpa say anything bad about anyone and that makes him the only person that never said anything bad about me and probably you.

He will be missed, but through faith in Jesus Christ I will see him again.

Thank You Jesus!

Can anyone ever replace a grandpa? No way! I miss mine continually. If ever this world needed those folks from that "Greatest Generation", it would be now. Nice tribute. Come see my "Grandpa" poem if you get time. It got published in "Chicken Soup for the Grandparent's Soul". Thanks for sharing.

So sorry to hear of your grandfather's death, Officer Bill! My prayers are with you and your family during this sad time in your life; God be with you and comfort you all!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Tx., Karen Lynn. :( >tears <

Be praying for Karla and myself; Karla has a pinched nerve in her neck, and she may need surgery down the road! :(
