”1932 - 2011”


    ...... "When it comes time to die,
    be not like those whose hearts are filled with the fear of death,
    so when their time comes they weep
    and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way.
    Sing your death song,
    and die like a hero going home."
      ~ Chief Aupumut, Mohican. 1725
