Leonard "Pookie" Rogers
”1939 - 2016”
"To be proud of whom I've tried to be, And this life I chose to live.
To make the most of every day By giving all I have to give.
To me that's what this life should be, To me that's what it's for.
To take what God has given me And make it so much more
To live a life that matters, To be someone of great worth.
To love and be loved in return And make my mark on Earth.
