In memory of my Dad Milton Ellinghuysen on his birthday Feb. 19, 1930 (02/17/2013)

Dear Dad,

Do you remember the day

your “Ma” passed away

And then four months later

Grandpa too went by her

also to stay

His heart was broken

and it seemed I could see

right through him

“My Grandpa” was giving up

This great man

I never thought Dad,

as being so young,

That my Dad would ever leave

Nor would I no longer

have his love

I know Dad that love never dies

for if it did I wouldn’t still cry

Sometimes I feel you so close

by my side

or hear your voice saying

“My daughter, don’t cry,

I’m right here beside you

Don’t you give up for I’ll always

in someway help you back up.

But one thing you must

understand

There’s someone higher that’s

holding your hand. Talk to Him and

remember He’s greater than I

for He showed us that the day

that He died...

So, smile my child, and know

I am near

and remember you’re all locked

in my heart for always up here.”

Thanks Dad, I miss you and

Happy Birthday,

Your Bonnie
