of friends,
and family especially,
the love of our God
perhaps some words of comfort

these may bring

though, truly,
loss of a loved one whom we hold dear
the pain in our hearts ceases nev'r

that cruel paradox, the pain from loss and the memories of a loved one dear,

could it be that it is
those memories in which we find
some strength, some comfort, some peace of mind

l'chaim - your life, Norman, your legacy!
