We Often Think Of Bygone Days

We often think of bygone days,
When we were all together,
The family chain is broken now,
But memories will live forever,
To us, he has not gone away,
Nor has he traveled far,
Just entered God’s eternal home,
And left the gate ajar.

My condolences to the Lukay family for the loss of their father. Cas hired me to work for him at Alberta Environment and we worked together for 24 years. He was a good boss, a gentle man and also a gentleman. His loss will be heaven’s gain.
