Albert Griffiths: One Year Memorial


Today is one year since Albert Griffiths passed away after being struck by a car while crossing a street and spending 25 days in hospital. He was a great father to Natasha, and I appreciate even the short time I knew him.

One year has come and gone, and we look back to remember his life and how he touched each of us. Victor, Natasha's eldest brother, found a poem which is being printed in a local newspaper, and we wanted it here as well:

God saw you getting tired
And a cure was not to be
So he put his arms around you
And whispered, "come to me"

A golden heart stopped beating,
Hard working hands at rest
He broke our hearts
To prove to us
He only takes the best

Our prayers and thoughts are with the Griffith family today as they look back to this day...a year ago.

Indeed he was a special man, and we are strengthened by knowing that we will see him again someday!

We have many fond memories of the short time we spent with Bro. Griffiths. He was a Wonderful Man...generous and kind. The poem is very fitting. Someday we will meet again!

Albert Griffiths.
He was my hero for over 40 years.
He had a big kind gentle heart.
He would give his last penny to help his children when they were in need.
He wore his emotions on his face, when he was sad, I was sad, when he was happy I was happy.
And when he was proud of something you did everyone knew it.
He was called many things but I called him DAD,
I miss him very much, Victor

My thoughts are with you and your family today, Natasha. I'm sure he's watching over you, Andrew - and your little one even as we speak.

The poem is lovely and very true.

Bro. Griffiths was a wonderful person. He had a great personality. Although we didn't know him very long, we miss him, and look forward to meeting him again.
