RITCHEY, David Alan Born:
God lent us a grandson for a Few short years.
To Love, and cherish, and hold so dear.
But he came one day and called him away
to a home in heaven, with him to stay.
We took such pride in watching him grow
to young manhood, and we loved him so.
When God called him home, we just couldn't see
Why our grandson it had to be;
His life was so full of sunshine and joy
which he shared with others, though he was only a boy.
He brightened our lives and we miss him so,
it broke our hearts to see him go.
No one knows as time passes on
how many grandsons may bless our Home.
But not one can ever take our David's place
with his sparkling eyes and his smiling face.
God, when you plucked that bud and carried it on high
to bloom and shine like a star in the sky,
you must have needed him there more than we did here,
but thank you, God, for those few short years.
