In Loving Memory of
Cecil Franklin “Horn” Atchley
12-14-61 to 5-16-2011
Its now been a year since that horrible day
When we got the call
They said the ambulance is on its way
We rushed to get to you but it was done to late
It wasn’t just a terrible fall
No time for I Love You or even goodbye
And we can’t seem to understand why
We often wonder here below
Why we had to let you go
Your smiling face was heaven to me
And now the pictures are all we have left to see
Daddy times have been hard
But somehow we’ve pulled thru
All we have left
Are the memories of you.
We love and Miss you
Shawn, Brandi, Brayden
And the rest of the family
