He was a lighthouse that shone so bright
A beacon of laughter, beauty and light
He was to others what they needed he be
Saddest to all he never could see
That smile was contagious, the jester for all
Never failing to help when ever we call
The lighthouse that left us forever will shine
In memories, and thoughts with love yours and mine.
