Tom Vanhecke
January 6, 1967 – July 17, 2019
Little Brother and Favourite Uncle
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.
Nor what was his church, nor what was his creed?
But had he befriended those really in need?
Was he ever ready, with words 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?
We miss you every day!
