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
