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 church?” not “What was his creed?”
But “Did he befriend those really in need?”
“Was he ever ready, with word of good cheer,
To bring back a smile—to banish a tear?”
Not “What did the sketch in the newspaper say?
But “How many were sorry when he passed away?”
