Albert Carey

Albert Carey Fortenberry
(June 22, 1914 - August 25, 2012)
When we thought of names for Ace,
There's a few that we explored.
He's named for his great grandpa,
Who has just gone to the Lord.
Though all will miss his smile,
We are glad his pain is gone,
Grateful for the memories we have
And that his name goes on.

The other night as we laid down,
Before our prayers could start,
Ace asked if while in Heaven,
Grandpa still lived in his heart.

Right you are My Ace,
And I bet that he bends double,
To see that it's his name we call,
Each time you get in trouble!
