Legacy

Remembering my dad today.

Edward Lee Jones, 11/14/43 – 5/19/10

 

You taught me to pray when I was sick.

You taught me to always have an open door.

You taught me that I am loveable.

You taught me how to make do with what I have.

You taught me how to hug.

You taught me to love my family.

You taught me how to enjoy simple things.

You taught me how to have a good laugh.

You taught me to not give up.

 You taught me that Jesus loves me SO much.

You taught me to improvise.

You taught me to enjoy late nights.

You taught me how to drive.

 You taught me to have a sweet tooth.

You taught me to enjoy the outdoors.

You taught me to be creative.

You taught me so much.

You taught me from my birth

to your death

and, in your passing,

you taught me about loss.

My Father takes over from here,

continuing the lessons he began through you,

and teaching me new ones

as I grow through the pain.
