Below, John shares a poem a good friend gave to him when his father died.
Your Father’s Tear
Fathers have a special place,
Within their children’s heart-
A place where they shall always live,
From which they won’t depart.
You shared the very good times,
And shared some tough times too.
Whatever life would throw at you,
He loved to share with you.
Life will now be different,
Since dad has gone away-
Yet you may sometimes talk to him,
When you have things to say.
He was so very proud of you-
His very precious son.(and daughters)
When illness overtook him,
You helped his business run.
Live your life with purpose,
Be all that you can be.
Bring honor to the man within-
Your father proudly sees
Please help us to remember, celebrate and honor this extraordinary man, John D. McCarthy Sr., or to everyone who knew and loved him, “Jack”.
