Rest in Peace

When I was a little kid, he would sing with me every day as he drove me to school:

We gon' take ol' drew to school,  <echo> We ain't gonna raise him up to be no fool!  <echo> He gotta fine teacher named Miss Ora Lou, <echo> And if you met her you would like her too! <echo>

Later as i grew up, he ingrained this little saying of his in my mind:

If you hurry for a wife, the pain will cut you like a knife, and you will wear the scars the rest of your life.

I'm happy for him. He can sing again now. so why the tears?
