The Measure of a Man
Not - How did he die?>
But - How did he live?
Not - What did he gain?
But - What did he give?
These are the units to measure the worth
Of a man as a man, regardless of birth.
Not - What was his station?
But - Had he a heart?
And - How did he play his God given part?
Was he ever ready with a word of good cheer,
To bring back a smile, to banish a tear?
Not - What was his church?
Nor - What was his creed?
But - Had he befriended those really in need?
Not - What did the sketch in the newspaper say?
But - How many were sorry when he passed away?

Jimmy will be lovingly and happily remembered by his family and friends and all those whose lives he touched.
