Today I went to my friend George’s Son’s viewing and funeral Mass at Saint Charles Church in Drexel Hill. Kyle was 14 years old, full of life, a happy go lucky kid who thrived to please anyone around him. I met Kyle years ago, and my younger Son Nicky and Kyle were buds. As a Dad, I can only imagine the thoughts and feelings going on in Kyle’s families’ heads right about now. My heart goes out to them and the outpouring of love and caring today from hundreds of people was beautiful and righteous.
You never said I’m leaving.
You never said Goodbye.
You were gone before we knew it, and and God knows only why.
A million times we needed you, a million times we’ve cried.
If love alone could have saved you, you never would have died.
In life we loved you dearly, in death we love you still.
In our hearts you hold a special place no one can ever fill.
It broke our hearts to lose you, but you didn’t go alone.
For a part of us went with you the day God called you home.
To George, Doreen, Brittany, Breahanna, George II, family & friends, my heart and the hearts of hundreds of others go out to you.
