"To Our Otee, On Your Birthday
Today was the day
91 years ago, December 3rd, 1924
You came into this world
Bringing a special glow

So full of love and passion
And laughter so loud
Thinking of you today
You still make us proud

Paapa, we know you're watching
We know your looking down
Your birthday is today
And although you're not around

It doesn't stop our thoughts
And never stops our prayers
We are sending birthday wishes
To our angel upstairs

Shamo and Siblings"

"3rd Anniversary poem  to Otee
Our beloved father
Fond memories linger every day
Remembrance keeps him near.
Gone is the face we loved so dear,
Silent is the voice we loved to hear,
Too far away for sight or speech,
But not too far for thought to reach,
Sweet to remember him who once was here,
And who, though absent, is just as dear.
Gone, dear father, gone forever,
How we miss your smiling face,
But you left us to remember
None on earth can take your place.
A happy home we once enjoyed -
How sweet the memory still-
But death has left a loneliness
The world can never fill.
Gone, dear father, gone to rest,
Away from sorrow, care and pain;
May you rest in peace, dear father,
Until we meet again."
