I AM...

I am whatever YOU think I am until YOU get to KNOW me. This is true for everyone else too, of course.. so don't make assumptions about anyone or pass judgment; ask questions. You might just make a new friend.

NOT, HOW DID HE DIE, BUT HOW DID HE LIVE





Not, How Did He Die,
But How Did He Live





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.
