"A Father"
by Sylvia Negron 2013

He bears your weight
in strong, loving arms.
He watches over
and protects you from harm.
                       
He looks ahead
and perceives your need,
then begins its fulfillment
by word and deed.
 
He guides and directs
and cherishes your health.
His worth is not determined
by his store of wealth.

He pushes you outside
your comfort zone
in an effort to ensure
you can walk on your own.
  
He sighs with nostalgia
and watches with pride
as you walk toward your future
with a confident stride.

You know that his deeds
will stand the test
and, as fathers go,
you have had the best.

Aldine Ingram
Was such a man.
His children were his pride.
The best in the land.

Arlene, Wyona,
Glenda and Shot,
Not a rotten apple
In the whole lot.

It couldn’t get better,
He thought, but then,
Along came the grandchildren,
And it began again.

Ryan, Natalie, Katherine
And the cycle renewed,
another funny, frolicking,
Loving brood.

And as the earth turned,
In the process of time
Along came the great-grands;
They just blew his mind.

He experienced the joy
of another loving crew:
Seth, Hamby & Ingram ,
Madeline and SOPHIE TOO,

A perfect example of
Close family ties,
Love knitted together
The fabric of their lives.

When trouble came,
They just drew together
And waited out the storm
Until calmer weather

Through all the trials
He and Mable faced,
They saw them through
With love and grace.

Aldine was never boisterous,
never loud or crude,
Just gentle, courteous,
And never rude.

You know his patience
Had no end
To survive Emmett invasions
Almost every weekend.

Their home was a hub,
The very center of the clan.
He welcomed them all
With an open hand.

Kind words, gentle smiles,
Witty jokes from him or Mable,
with coffee, tea and cornbread
On the kitchen table.

Loved by all
Who came his way,
we celebrate Aldine’s life
As we gather today.
