---.i...--- A TRIBUTE _i
OLIVER was not only my best friend but more or less
like my brother. There was not anything that we did not
do together. We have been to lots of places and behaved
like real blood relatives. There was not anytime at all that
we had any hard talk. He was always understanding, friendly
and.full of advice. Because of this he will always be remem-
bered. He was very well respected by his peers.
May He Find Eternal Peace with His Master.
uI A IELUVED FRIEND
He knew not sorrow whence it came
But joy was foremost, not his pain.
In Sorrow and in joy he shared
He was a friend a friend so dare
,4!i. He is departed from this earth
But he will still be in our every thought.
We must not remember him as he is,
Instead remember him as he was.
He was a happy and a joyous fellow,
Free of enemies and music mellow :
We must not grieve, for he was a happy man.
And now he's gone to rest in God's eternal hand.
