Eulogy:
by Jim Lew Kentner (Grandson)

"In the course of life divine
Seasons are born and then resign
All humanity must each pass through
Each step showing life's greater view

Our mortal eyes can only see
The one small part of life's steps three
From birth to death in mortal life
We cherish good and forget the strife

We all have lived in loftier spheres
This life is but an eternal mirror
And again when winter season's gone
We'll live again as from the dawn

Of one such man we praise today
His mortal season's has passed away
He is now at peace and free from pain
Free to return to heaven again

With joy we remember his many years
Each one filled with joys and tears
His early year's trials were springs new birth
His middle years brought summer growth

His Autumn days showed forth his worth
For all he loved enjoyed his mirth
He so enjoyed the little things
By them he would defy life's little stings

Large of stature and hard working
He never overlooked a single thing
A kind and gentle man was he
T'was always fun on Grandpa's knee

From jokes & tricks to sincere concern
Our grandparent's visits we all did yearn
We always felt his love sincere
Whenever our sweet Grandpa was near

Now winter's come & winter's gone
We'll never forget him & our bonds
He's always with us in our hearts
For death cannot keep us apart

As we gather here today
We each in our own certain way
Remember special moments dear
We feel our Grandpa's really near

We won't sit around feeling blue
We'll see him again that is true
If he could play one last joke, here's what he'd do
He'd sit straight up and holler "BOO!"
