In Loving Memory Of & Dedicated To Michael Lee Nida
... & The Nida-Thaxton Families
(Written By L.M. of Nida's Rydas 10/27/2011)
You were ours to cherish here on earth,
Though for such a short time,
All those with whom you came in contact,
Thought God having shared you,
So tremendously kind.
You were a very loving Father of 4 precious children,
A Husband to a beautiful Wife of many years,
Starting out so young,
Yet holding it down,
Never anticipating or needing any applause or cheers.
You were also a Son, a Brother, an Uncle, a Cousin, a Nephew,
A Coach, a Companion and Dear Friend,
Your love and genuine acts of kindness towards others,
Had no boundaries,
Saw no end.
You were truly one of a kind,
There could never be another one,
I pray God help and forgive them,
For they know not what they've done.
Sleep in peace now Dear Mikey,
For you will live happily and gracefully,
Amongst your fellow Guardian Angels,
Watching cautiously and lovingly over your family,
Friends and loved ones,
Cheering us on when we make you proud,
Or giving us an extra little push for motivation,
When the time comes.
You'll shine your Big Beautiful Smile down upon us,
Helping us to give whatever it may be our very best,
Ever keeping our days so... Bright,
Our very own Guardian Angel Mikey,
The one with the Huge Heart,
And Halo slightly tilted to the right.
We will one day meet again,
But with tears of joy,
No longer those of sorrow,
Such as the day from us you went,
But in Heaven up above,
Where you must have had to return,
To do BIG things,
For you were truly Heaven sent.
