Well my day ain't going as planed, But I wrote some if any one would want to read it out loud It go;s------ MEANINGS As we all come together as family & friends in the Lords House, we would hoped for it to be an enjoyable moment, It's not . But let's change this moment into a day of all great & not so great things about Mike Higdon All of us sitting here today, thinking that we've lost a love one ' but that's not true, we've not lost him because, We- meaning ( all of us ) & lost meaning ( we no where he's at ). Some of us has experienced that our loved one's didn't get a chance to live-long meaning ( life taken to soon ). But Mike he had the chance to long-live meaning ( to live a-long life span ) When it's my time/ your time/ or their time. Then we are loosing them meaning ( to set free). Now we are loosing Mike knowing that he was an awesome man. A quite guy. A good friend, A great father. Also an handsome fellow. So with all that being said: These are the things that caught Debbie's attention years ago, And that made him a wonderful husband . " You & I " know how to heal, it takes time / and more time , I believe, - That's Gods way of showing us that we are strong !!! R.I.P " Mike "
