Farms in Heaven

In Loving Memory (Ralph K. Madison Jr. 8/1/57-1/25/03)

There must be farms in heaven,

With cows and fields of hay.

What else could be the reason,

God's taken him away.

A young man barely forty five,

Who worked the family farm,

A son, a brother, an uncle,

He never did no harm.

There must be farms in heaven,

In need of helping hands.

What else could be the reason,

God's chosen this man.


My brother Rusty seen milking a cow.

Today Aug. 1, 2016 would have been his 59th birthday.  It's hard to believe thirteen plus years have gone by.
