Everyone remembers the day a loved one died --
This is true for my friend Judith A.
It's not a misnomer, the name: "Death Valley" --
A father is the most special of men --
Because of his efforts many traits are instilled
It's wonderful to see a child that's not unruly --
Satisfying is the sight of a youth one can be proud of --
Many times it's sad to see a parent try to mold
One can only step back and observe
We can all empathize with the one I call Judy --
It seems to matter not -- city or nature's grandeur --
