Dedicated to my Dad, Tubby Dotson
In life's tough moments, he kept on fighting,
A strong spirit, always igniting.
A loyal soul, through thick and thin,
His hard work, spoke a tale within.
He left a legacy of strength and endless love,
A fighter’s spirit now guiding us from above.
In the warmth of memories, where he will reside,
And forever be by our side.
In heaven's embrace, his battles now cease,
No more suffering, only eternal peace.
