I have lived eighty years of life and know nothing for it, but to be resigned and tell myself that flies are born to be devoured by spiders and man by his sorrows--Voltaire


Dress down in blacks
And whites and greys
Bow your heads
Today’s the day for
Remembrance

Watch the skies as
Rain falls down
Silver linings on
Every cloud
Today’s no day for
Sadness

Don’t cry
He never wanted to see you
Crying
And live
He always taught you how
To live

Dress down in black
Watch the procession but
Don’t look back
Today’s the day…
For remembrance

In memory of the best art teacher that Ben Davis High School will ever have, and to a beautiful soul that passed from our lives unexpectedly and all too soon. May he rest in peace.
