First written in Oct 2009 for a friend, whose son left this life in tragic circumstances. To one so treasured…this humble tribute.

Yo Gordy.  Never to be forgotten

Remembering your
Effusive personality
Success in work

Infectious laughter
Notable story telling

Passion for fashion
Enormous hunger
Astounding talent
Courage in suffering
Engaging charm

Keeps you larger than life
In our thoughts forever

Though snatched away
By death’s cold hand –
Fingertips caress your pictures,
Hearts embrace your memory,
and heaven is enriched
