There was no finer man than Joe Maron

A Good Man by James Whitcomb Riley


A good man never dies--
In worthy deed and prayer
And helpful hands, and honest eyes,
If smiles or tears be there:
Who lives for you and me--
Lives for the world he tries
To help--he lives eternally.
A good man never dies.


Who lives to bravely take
His share of toil and stress,
And, for his weaker fellows' sake,
Makes every burden less,--
He may, at last, seem worn--
Lie fallen--hands and eyes
Folded--yet, though we mourn and mourn,
A good man never dies.

I will miss you, Joe Maron.

Such nice photos of the two of you. I know you and Donald are going to miss the Marons.

This is lovely, Kaye. What losses we have had to suffer this year. Did you know Bren Witchger died? I knew it was coming but it still broke my heart.

Thank you, Lesa. Don has already mentioned how it's going to hurt not stopping by to see them on our way to the beach this year.

Oh, no. Sarah, I did not know.
