  • Eulogy : by M. L. Link

    Though i’m gone
    And no longer there
    I leave behind sorrow
    And great despair.

    I’ve gone away
    With wings in flight
    Driven towards eternal light..

    Remember me now
    For in heaven i reside
    And hold me close deep inside…

    Dry your tears
    For i had to go
    To live with the lord
    In his blissful glow….

    Rest In Peace Hank
