Straight From Voicemail

So, sir, hearing your voice was quite a shock.
A calendar year has done nothing to quell our disbelief
Of the past twelve months without you.

There we were, though, together,
In your honor and you spoke to each of us
Much like you do everyday.

For Skip it came through as ice cream, just as cold as yours.
Steve heard your call to adventure by trying to understand Netflix.
I felt your influence through the warmth of our family.

All three of us were lucky to know you,
To have married your daughters,
To be raising your grandkids.

And rest assured, Poppi,
We’re taking care of Angela too,
Just liked we’d promised.

We miss you, man.
The Mexican fiesta was awesome
And it sure was good hearing from you.
