POEM on back of memorial encased in plastic;
You cannot say, you must not say 
That he is dead.  He is just away!
With a cheery smile
and a wave of the hand
He has wandered into an unknown land
And left us dreaming how very fair
It needs must be,
Since he lingers there;
So think of him faring on, as dear
In the love of There as the love of Here,
Think of him still 
as the same, and say
He is not dead, he is just away
     James Whitcomb Riley
