To a man I never met,
I wish I had the pleasure to meet you,
to see how you truly impacted his life.
Surely you know, but I'll tell you again.
Your son is amazing.
A boy with issues, partially due to losing you,
but a boy that can always make my day.
He's kind and smart,
passionate when it matters.
He knows what he wants
and will fight for that.
He loves his friends, and his family.
He knows how to make things right.
I wish you could see who he became
And the impact you made on his life.
I thank you for your service,
of years in the Coast Guard.
I thank your family and all their service,
I thank you for impacting your son.
He wants to become a police officer to help
people. You've made your mark.
I pray that as I write this, you are in heaven,
looking down, smiling, proud of him.
To the man I can never have the pleasure of meeting.
