He has achieved success who has lived well, laughed
often and loved much; who has gained the respect of
intelligent men and the love of little children; who has
filled his niche and accomplished his tasks; who has left
the world better than he found it whether by an im-
proved poppy, a perfect poem or a rescued soul; who
has never lacked appreciation of earth's beauty or failed
to express it; who has looked for the best in others and
given the best he had; whose life was an inspiration;
Whose men ory is a benediction.
