566. 3/7/16 (#558)
Laughed before we cried
There was such life in his eyes,
That far surpassed his body's limits.
So keen to speak,
To tell of all his years,
And to learn of new ones to come.
No fear of change crept into his mind,
Always looking forward,
Never "It was better in the old days" but rather "It was different".
A man led by a love of God,
Who led him to touch hearts,
And raise spirits.
And the finest mark of such a man,
That in memory we laughed before we cried.
