His Loving Wife

Charles Dickens so eloquently stated in his poem titled

"We Simply Say Good-bye"

Good-bye my friend, We will miss you Dan.

We say it for an hour or for years,

We say it smiling, say it choked with tears;

We say it coldly, say it with a kiss;

And yet we have no other words than this,

" Good-bye"

We have no dearer word for our hearts friend,

For him who journeys to the world's far end,

And sears our soul with going; this we say,

As unto him who steps but o'er the way-


Alike to those we love, and those we hate,

We say no more at parting at life's gate,

To him who passes out beyond earths sight-

We cry, as to the wanderer for the night,


Dan was many things to many people over the time he was with us-

A son, a father, a man and most importantly a friend.


Your Friends Paul WA7US (and Hal)
