In loving memory of Justin Jean Anderson 1936 – 2017. You said, “If you’ve heard this one before
Put a finger in the air so I’ll know Back in the 70s, when I was on patrol
I responded to a call in the snow…“ We know You said, “Let’s feed the cows
and move the pipes The earth provides and the future is bright We plant tomatoes, corn and
beans And everything will be enough if we do the work right” It isn’t the smell of popcorn or leather
Or seeing your tractor, no matter the weather You worker, you fighter, you man It isn’t Christmas Eves that you plan perfectly Or the times playing cards with
the whole family You worker, you fighter, you man You taught us with example and love
Always thinking of your father above You said, “I’m praying for you,” we always knew you do And we’re praying for you too It isn’t the hugs, the train around the tree
Dessert in the kitchen, food channel on TV You worker, you fighter, you man Sunday afternoon is our favorite time and place Seeing Patches on your lap, a smile on your face You worker, you fighter, you man You are a worrier, because you care so much Even halfway round the world,
we could still feel your love It isn’t because you lived life perfectly
Or that you cut watermelon professionally You worker, you fighter, you man It’s the intangible gifts that you gave us all You said, “They’ll be no empty chairs at our table” You worker, you fighter, you man You worker, you fighter, you man We love you husband We love you friend We love dad We love you grandpa And always will. I love you grandpa and miss you everyday
