We are gathered here today to celebrate the life of #201. He was in so many ways a deer fried, loved by his wife Dewalt 611, and father to #202 and #203Z though he is gone it is important to remember his contribution to this world.
He has given Birth to a Cow, flames, plaques puzzle box’s, i remember once when he and i tried our hand at deep earth drilling, as i write this i remember the look on our faces when the z gantry crumpled under the pressure and v wheels disintegrated, and the spoil board snapped in half, oh such fond memories.
Though he was a hard worker and faithful, he had a mischievous side, like the time i left him alone for 5 mins and came back to him trying to set fire to the workshop, or throwing things of the table at me, he was such a scamp.
Towards the end of his life the chattering was just getting so bad that i could hardly understand what he was saying or what he was cutting.I did think it was strange that he was making a casket but perhaps, he already new the end was near, and didn’t want anyone else having the pain and worries of buying or creating him one.
I have been asked by his wife to share pictures of the service and i would love everyone out there who knew #201 to leave their favorite memory in the book of condolence below.
i have written a shall poem that i shall read now before we go and enjoy some food and drinks.
You are gone but not forgotten
you shone like silver
though you had a black bottom
Up and down and side to side
you cut everything with such pride
day and night time and tide
it time for your final ride
So grab your Collet raise the wrench
sit now on this heavenly bench
watch with love on what your children do
who know one day they might be as good as you
