One of those men you meet along life path,
Always a smile, hard shake and a laugh,
And having once met,
You never will forget,
A man with a heart as big as himself,
The will to serve – this was his wealth.

Mounting success upon success,
And yet with modest humbleness.

And it’s with pride we will remember,
Long past the end,
Our Friend,
