JUST ANOTHER AVERAGE JOE
(For Bob Wheatley’s Uncle, who passed away last year)

Just another average Joe
has passed away today –
another unsung hero,
a hero from another day –
a soldier, a survivor –
of the ravages of War –
he was a husband, son and father;
I cannot say who loved him more.
Father, when You smile on him
and take him to Your Home –
he will be among his brothers
he will never be alone –
He will never be in pain again
he will never be afraid –
He was among the best creations
that You have ever made.
