Happy Birthday Dad!

Dean W. Mathison
Nov. 18, 1945 - Feb. 10, 2009

Happy Birthday In Heaven
We little knew that morning
God was going to call your name.
In life we loved you daily, In
death we do the same.
It broke
our hearts to lose you. You did
not go alone, For part of us
went with you, The day God called
you home. You left us peaceful
memories, Your love is still
our guide, And though we cannot
see you,
You are always at our side.
Our family chain is broken,
And nothing seems the same, But
as God calls us one by one, The
chain will link again.

Happy Birthday Dad! Miss you like crazy. Look down from heaven and watch over the brave who ride-out and continue to answer the call.

Grandma Mathison - who we lost 4 yrs ago to day - miss you both every day! Grandma Mathison passed away on my Dad's 60th bday, shortly after the last member of the family said their goodbye.
