Uncle Rock

Uncle Rock was a great man.
He was passionate, fun and caring.
It is a shame he had to go.
I remember long bike rides,
hiking in Gitchee Gumee
and ice cream cones.
I remember board games till midnight,
snowball fights,
and thoughtful, sarcastic jokes.
I remember his photography,
his love of friends and family
and fun trips to Chicago.
He was thoughtful, sensitive,
a good example and friend
we are blessed to have known.
And at least we have hope and faith
that we will be united someday.
Still, it is hard to let him go.
