Honorable Vinicius S. Hodges

“Weep not for me though I am gone, into that gentle night, grieve if you will, but not for long, upon my soul’s sweet flight. I am at peace. My soul is at rest. There is no need for tears. For with your love, I was so blessed for all those many years. There is no pain. I suffer not. The fear now all is gone. Put now these things out of your thoughts. In your memory I live on. Remember not my fight for breath, remember not the strife, please do not dwell upon my death, but celebrate my life.”
