Don't remember me with sadness, Don't remember me with tears, Remember all the Laughter, We shared through all the years. Now I am Content, Now my Life was worthwhile, Knowing that I passed Along the way, I made somebody Smile. When you are walking along the Street, And you got me on your Mind, I'm walking in your footsteps, Only a Half-of-Step behind. So please, Don't be unhappy, Just because I'm out of Sight, Remember I am with You. Every morning, noon and Night.

Again what a great spirit of a brother my boy Moose.
Folks don’t recall he placed the Simon Bar Sinister name on me at PHS.
Days of our youth great memories.
