Tribute To Captain Joe Anslum.
Dear God in Heaven above
Today is the day that You took someone we love
We know that Today is not a day of death, but rebirth
Because he lived a long and healthy life here on earth
So on this day we will look back no more
Because on this day we know he's with You, Jesus Christ our Lord
The man that has left us he will truly be missed
For all that knew him we know that we were blessed
Dear God in Heaven above
The man that I refer to was a husband, father, brother, grandfather and dear friend
For when our time comes we know that we will see him again
Dear God in Heaven above
We pray that You will guide us to see this through
Hold us and keep us safe in all that we do.we need not to worry
Because Your there with him with open arms
Dear God in Heaven above
The man that stands before You was deeply loved
Although it seems like it is the end
Now the memories of him shall begin
Dear God in Heaven above
We are here today with sorrow and grief
But when we look up toward Heaven there will be a sence of relief
Because the man before You is in a better place.

"one year later and i am missing you still. I THINK of you daily and hope that my life has as much meaning as yours had for so many. A true role model and..." Chad Anslum (white settlement, TX)
