FC: In memory of dad, Bobby Lee Widowski | How it all began... The Peterson-Widowski story
1: Bobby Lee Widowski May 22, 1929-August 1 2011
2: Precious father and Loving mother Fly across the lonely years and old home scenes from my childhood In fond memories...appear | Precious memories, how they linger... How they ever flood my soul In the stillness of the midnight Precious sacred scenes unfold | As I travel on life's pathway... Know not what the years may hold As I ponder, oh how hope grows fonder Precious memories flood my soul.... | Precious memories, unseen angels Sent from somewhere to my soul How, Oh how they linger .... ever near me And the sacred scene unfolds... | Song played on dad's video... words seem fitting for the book....
4: You may have thought I didn't see, Or that I hadn't heard, The life lessons that you taught to me, But trust me dad, I got every word. Perhaps you thought I missed it all, And that we'd grow apart, But Dad, I picked it all up, And oh daddy It's written on my heart. When I needed you, you were always there. Dad, you were like the sun to me, just always there. | Whatever is good in me today, I owe to your blunt wisdom, your patience, your strength, your stubbornness and your love. You taught me by example, how to be my own person, To be independent how to believe in myself, How to stand up for what I believe And to live a modest life, working hard for what you have. | You built a strong foundation in me No one can ever take away. Without you, Dad, I wouldn't be The woman I am today; I've grown up with your values, And I'm very glad I did; Those values and morals Have help to raise my amazing kids And a loving wife I need to be | You made me feel protected; I was sheltered by your knowing you were there I am going to miss you dearly. And to you no one will ever be able to quite compare.... | But I want to tell you something You probably didnÂ’t know... You are my hero, Dad You're my secure foundation. When I think you so many emotions flood my heart.. You see I thought we had so much longer Honestly, I thought of you as to stubborn to die | And I donÂ’t know what I am going to do Without you ringing my doorbell Until I have to yell at you to stop. What am I going to do without seeing that grin As I realize you were trying to get me riled up What am I going to do without that sloppy kiss And the pat on my back And the soft," Â‘I love ya sis"Â’ as you walk out the door. | I love you, Dad.... I would give anything to be irritated by you one more time. Dana | Written by Dana Widowski Langbein 8-5-11
6: A good woman is hard to find, and worth far more than diamonds.Her husband trusts her without reserve, and never has reason to regret it. Never spiteful, she treats him generously all her life long. She shops around for the best yarns and cottons, and enjoys knitting and sewing. She's like a trading ship that sails to faraway places and brings back exotic surprises. She's up before dawn, preparing breakfast for her family and organizing her day. She looks over a field and buys it, then, with money she's put aside, plants a garden. First thing in the morning, she dresses for work, rolls up her sleeves, eager to get started.She senses the worth of her work, is in no hurry to call it quits for the day. She's skilled in the crafts of home and hearth, diligent in homemaking.She's quick to assist anyone in need, reaches out to help the poor. She doesn't worry about her family when it snows; their winter clothes are all mended and ready to wear. | Proverbs 31:10-28 | She makes her own clothing, and dresses in colorful linens and silks. Her husband is greatly respected when he deliberates with the city fathers.She designs gowns and sells them, brings the sweaters she knits to the dress shops. Her clothes are well-made and elegant, and she always faces tomorrow with a smile.When she speaks she has something worthwhile to say, and she always says it kindly.She keeps an eye on everyone in her household, and keeps them all busy and productive. Her children respect and bless her
