Daddy's Girl

God took the strength of a mountain,
The majesty of a tree,
The warmth of a summer sun,
The calm of a quiet sea,
The generous soul of nature,
The comforting arm of night,
The wisdom of the ages,
The power of the eagle's flight,
The joy of a morning in spring,
The faith of a mustard seed,
The patience of eternity,
The depth of a family need,
Then God combined these qualities,
When there was nothing more to add,
He knew His masterpiece was complete,
And so, He called it ... Dad.

What a lovely poem. It is a fitting tribute to Darren. Your children are fortunate to have a wonderful, loving mother AND father! I keep looking again and again at the pictures you have posted of Kristen; what a dear little baby! Love - Aunt Martha
