I POSTED THIS ENTRY BECAUSE OF THE MANY WHISPERS N' SIP SIP FOLKS STILL PUTTING OUT THERE ABOUT MAURICE'S DEATH.
Not how did he die, but how did he live?
Not what did he gain, but what did he give?
These are the units to measure the worth
of a man as a man, regardless of birth.
Not, what was his church, nor what was his creed?
But had he befriended those really in need?
Was he ever ready, with word of good cheer,
to bring back a smile, to banish a tear?
Not what did the sketch in the newspaper say,
but how many were sorry when he passed away
Not, How Did He Die, But How Did He Live - Author Unknown
I dedicate this to Maurice, his was a gentle soul to those that knew him
and a kind, loving friend to many…
Rest in Peace.
