Song for Lamar

by Beth Thomas, Rebecca Boelzner, Quinn Delaney, John Heffernan, Alexandria Hoffman, and Laura Pitkin


He was clean cut, a jokester, funny in his own little way,
He’d been here before.
He said “put down” for sit, and “down down” for lay
Lamar, animal lover.
Used to call before midnight, so he could be the first one,
I miss those phone calls
Never gave me any trouble, did things I would have never done
He loved adventure.

Lamar had his mother’s big heart,
Don’t know how he fit that heart in his body.
Lamar had his mother’s big heart,
Don’t know how he fit that heart in his body.

His oldest, little Kenney, looks just like his dad
He’s gone but his spirit’s still here.
Don’t say bye say see you later
He’d give you anything he had
He was beyond.

Lamar had his mother’s big heart,
Don’t know how he fit that heart in his body.
Lamar had his mother’s big heart,
Don’t know how he fit that heart in his body.

Mama, you taught me what unconditional love is. Now, I can show my own children what it is. Thank you, mama. Love you, Kenney.

Lamar had his mother’s big heart,
Don’t know how he fit that heart in his body.
Lamar had his mother’s big heart,
Don’t know how he fit that heart in his body.
