2: I am writing my husband’s eulogy ... not something I was expecting to do this soon, or ever! My husband was my best friend for a long time before we married. I knew him well. We were friends first and then we were soul mates. He was to be the father of my child. We had lots of fun and great times as a family. Carlie was born in 2007, and Kenn was the best daddy ever. Kenn and I just celebrated our sixth anniversary on July 16, 2012. I did not always agree with his ideas and dreams, but I always loved hearing about each of them. He wanted to do what he thought he was born to do - build boats, dinghies, fiber glass dinghies for beautiful sailboats, and live by the ocean, although he was deathly afraid of sharks! Kenn loved to skateboard! He was still trying to land a "360 kick flip"! He loved to landscape and garden and had a tremendous love for all animals. He loved his dogs: Dottie, Little Boy Bleu, his cat, Sophie and Oppie-Yoda, the turtle! He loved spending time outside, and walking the dogs around the lake near our house! Kenn loved to sing, and wanted his own punk rock band!
3: He often made up songs while doing something mundane like feeding the dogs or getting Carlie ready for school. He recently started taking classes at Redstone and Red Rocks Community College. Kenn wanted to get into real estate and flip houses. He took the summer off to be with Carlie while working part-time at KFC. When Carlie graduated from pre-school, he was the only father to attend and she was the only student in her class to receive a rose from her father. He always thought of everything! He wrote me love notes all the time, telling me how much he loved me and Carlie. Kenn worked at many different places over the years, included LaFarge and Asphalt Paving. He specialized in rock mining and plant maintenance. All we can do now is reflect on what a special man Kenn truly was. He is at peace now and not alone; he is with his brother, Bob and our heavenly Father in Heaven. Teresa

22: No one knew the torment, That you were going through; We only kept on seeing What we really wanted to. We saw the outward smile, But not your inner pain; We never really dreamed, That you would never smile again. Forgive us if we failed to see, What we could do to aid; Or if we failed to comprehend, How much you were afraid.
23: We pray your mental anguish, Will now forever cease; And that your deep anxieties, Will be replaced by peace. We know your pain invaded, Every single thought you had; It made you cry internally, And deeply, deeply sad. But we in turn remember, The good times, not the bad; We remember when you smiled at us, And not when you were sad. | So when we think about your life, We won't dwell upon its close; We'll remember all the good times, And forget about life's blows. We'll remember all the happiness, The joy and not the tears; The assurance and the confidence, And not irrational fears. Our lives have all been better, Because you have been there; So now we leave your memory, In God's all-loving care. a poem by Dick Underwood 2008 Copied from www.funeral-poems.net website with permission.
