There is a stubborn old man who lives at the lake and here is a tale for you,
One of eight, a baby boy, and now sadly, left with two.
A family business, the factory of glass, all the brothers worked their ass.
Brothers off to war, the baby, too young for that door,
a Merchant Marine to see the world, back and married in 54'.
Hard work his whole life and never a break, complaint or whine,
he sacrificed and sacrificed and volunteered time after time.
The School Board, the Charger Club, Malibou Lake and more,
not rich by any standard but we were blessed with much much more.
A dad who cared and gave us his all, from tying knots
to throwing the ball.
3 jobs at times and never a rest, not missing a game, a function, he still gives us his best.
4 kids, 7 grand kids and 2 great grand kids, this man still stands, a bit more shaky, but oh so grand.
No better dad to shepard a flock, Robert Daniel McLaughlin will always be our ROCK.
Happy Father's Day!
This is Dave, from the McLaughlin Flock, keeping it real in real estate!
