How do you list the value of this man?
I have a ‘way with words’, but I don’t think I can.
A smile sweet with genuine concern,
An eager spirit, always willing to learn.
Encouragement he offers to every friend,
Loyal & supportive – to the very end.
Devotion to God and true love for his wife,
Faith, family & work – a truly balanced life.
So caring, generous & helpful – it’s true.
But never a boastful word…he’s humble too.
Working through the weeks, days & hours
Thousands of trees, bushes & flowers
Playgrounds installed and parks well tended,
Walking paths created & courts now mended.
Projects well started are now complete
A busy “to-do list”- becomes a blank sheet.
Years gone by – January thru December
Now just thoughts to ponder, and remember.
Enjoying the work that was done
Meant having a job that was more like “fun”.
A duty once demanding became a labor of love,
To the citizens of Wichita & the Heavenly Father above.With all the love for my brother in Christ, Tim Martz.
