But strew his ashes to the wind
Whose sword or voice has served mankind,—
And is he dead, whose glorious mind
Lifts thine on high?—
To live in hearts we leave behind
is not to die
-Thomas Campbell, Hallowed Ground
Goodbye Gene. The world’s a bit darker without you in it. You touched so many lives, had so many friends, and went way before your time. You won’t be forgotten.
