Unendingly I mourn my precious son
Too early yet this earthly home he left,
Perfidious sleep confounded nature's order
To leave his loves perpetually bereft.
How treacherous death does steal on youth's exuberance,
To wreak such havoc from the ecstasy of life,
Where once was only joy and future promise
Tormented hearts endure eternal strife.
Visitation will be Thursday, July 14, 2016 from 4pm to 8pm at West Harpeth Funeral Home in Nashville with services on Friday, July 15, 2016 at 10am at Middle Tennessee State Veterans Cemetery, 7931 McCrory Lane, Nashville, TN 37221.
