Ford, John J.

In Memoriam - 10/04/43 - 04/21/09

A life lived with integrity, grace and dry wit,

seeking knowledge of heart and brain.

Adventure and culture and fearlessness,

no challenge not obtained.

As human when he stumbled,

with strength of will he overcame,

to persevere with greater wisdom,

and not forgotten, set aside the pain.

A gentle soul and generous being,

never a thought to question his love.

Too short a life, not perfect, but full,

eternity to be spent above.

A gift for having shared his life,

a love like his remains,

within me as if set in amber,

with gratitude unrestrained.

His loving wife, Eileen
