Mr. Clyde

Ricky Tanksley wrote this song about my granddaddy, Clyde Walters, on January 5, 1998.  He sang it at my granddaddy's funeral the next day.
 
Mr. Clyde
 
I married into his family.
He welcomed me with open arms.
It didn't take long 'til we were friends
and that meant so much to me.
 
The times we fished,
the tales you told,
I never saw you growing old.
As the years went by,
Sometimes I'd see you cry.
You knew this day was coming soon.
 
On this day, I lost my friend,
Jesus took you home to be with Him.
And I know He wouldn't want me to cry,
But, on this day, I have to, Mr. Clyde.
 
As I stand here today
With your friends and family,
I look around at all the lives you touched -
A legacy of a simple man.
 
On this day, I lost my friend,
Jesus took you home to be with Him.
And I know He wouldn't want me to cry,
But on this day, I have to, Mr. Clyde.
On this day, I have to Mr. Clyde
On this day, I love you, Mr. Clyde.

My favorite line in this song is "A legacy of a simple man"
My granddaddy was a simple man indeed but the legacy he left will last and be remember for generations to come.
 
What is your legacy?
