Freely you gave your home
Relying on hospitality rather than money to feed the stranger.
Ordering the peace of the home
Manfully establishing stability.
Could you have been the father I did not expect,
Replacing the distance of my own?
All the rough edges on the surface
Purposefully obscuring the gentle interior.
Putting forth a good word,
Enjoined to your way of love,
Rejoicing, we honor your memory.
