His roads of life have been so hard and rough
But he hung in there though the going was tough
He raised his children Joe and Kate without Kate his wife
To cancer she lost her battle for life
To him and their children her's was a huge loss
Her passing on them such a heavy cross
With child raising Archibald learned to cope
He is one who never gives up on hope
In tests of character great courage he has shown
He never re-married raised his children on his own
A sixty years old Grandfather the years have left him gray
That he has not had an easy life would seem quite fair to say
Through life's hard days Archibald hung in there
One might say he has earned his gray hair.
