To Michael with Love
L is for Love that’s always near
Embracing, holding you my dear,
You only need to seek and ask,
It’s ready and able to meet the task.
The door is open, walk right in,
Travel a road you’ve never been,
Voices whisper, loved ones meet,
Hands reach out, ready to greet.
O is opportunity for eternal joy
That comes to every girl and boy,
Rise, go forth with humble heart
Ready and willing to do your part.
V is victory all must gain
Over a world filled with sin and pain,
Fight each battle, win the war,
Years define what you waited for.
E is for effort you gave each day
Seeking and striving to find your way,
Family love is here to give,
Embrace it now…begin to live.
Written by Dr. Mamie Smith
Leaving a Legacy
Having a grandson to “pick up the torch” and move it forward, is a desire of every member of the Ferguson-Dotson Family. Michael was no exception.
We are defined by the values we share and the examples we live. Give to mankind the best that you are.
