I have so many fond memories of my dad. I know he always wanted me to be a writer and I still do poetry on the side. I will try and get something done with it before my time is up. I appreciate Mosers making my dad look like the man he once was. He will be missed by all his family and friends, but will always be with each one of us in our hearts. Go rest your weary eyes and worn out body, put your mind at ease and finally find your peace. Love you always and forever dad. Farewell for now.
