Went Home to Heaven

August 4th, 2007




Daddy is in Heaven now

Fishing in oceans, rivers and streams

It’s more beautiful and has

Bigger fish than he has ever seen

It was his time to go there

God knew Daddy needed him bad

But All of us will miss him

And it makes us really sad

So talk about the fun times

It helps to forget the sad

We know our Daddy would want that

It would make him really glad

God gave us family and friends to love

And talk about Daddy too…

A hug, a kiss, a game not missed

Will help us All get through

Daddy loves us All so much

We knew it from the start

He’ll always be there cheering for us

Because we’ll feel him in our hearts

Poem written by Theresa Loza



Paul was a remarkable, beautiful man.

A “big man” as everyone knew him, with a big

caring and compassionate heart to match


Paul was such a kind, doting father, adoring husband

True, loyal and faithful friend

A simple man with simple needs, who,

had a passion for the outdoors, he loved to fish,

He loved the ocean and most of all…

He loved to spend time with his family and friends.


We will miss him so very much

Psalm 23

The lord is my shepherd

I have everything I need

He lets me rest in green meadows

He leads me beside peaceful streams

He renews my strength

He guides me along right paths

Bringing honor to his name

Even when I walk

Through the dark valley of death

I will not be afraid

For you are close beside me

Your rod and your staff

Protect and comfort me

You prepare a feast for me

In the presence of my enemies

You welcome me as a guest

Anointing my head with oil

My cup overflows with blessings

Surely your goodness and unfailing love

Will peruse me all the days of my life

And I will live in the house of the Lord




Don’t grieve for me, for now I am free

I’m following the path God has laid for me

I took his hand, when I heard him call

I turned my back and left it all

I could not stay another day, to laugh,

To love, to work or play

Task undone must stay that way

I’ve found that peace at the close of the day

If parting has left in you a void, then fill it

With remembered joy

A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss,

Ah, yes, these things I too will miss

Be not burdened with times of sorrow

I wish for you the sunshine of tomorrow

My life’s been full, I savored much

Good friends, good times, a loved one’s touch

Perhaps my time seemed all to brief

Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief

Lift up your hearts and share with me,

God wants me now, He set me Free.
