George N Lamon

“I did the best I could”

My heart not open to love

I had passion, ideas, and a pure soul

I just needed more help from above


The blessing in this life: plenty for me

I’m so proud of my girls they know


Mourn not for the loss, but celebrate the life

Given by Him

Whom all blessings flow
