Written in June 2010 for the funeral of my father-in-law, Philip Davis (88yrs)

The journey has been long,

so tough in later years.

Yet you kept pressing on –

through ups, downs, joys and tears


Bravely you have served

so generously giving

nothing was held back

selflessly living


Dignity shone through

’til the very end

With faith intact, hope undimmed

and Jesus, your best friend


Your race has been well run

the course is now complete

and finally you rest

content at Father’s feet
