First Blytherille Showing A THOUGHT TO REMEMBER By Mrs. Buddy Howard A family found this verse in personal papers and we were graciously given permission to publish it. I've a wonderful boy, and I say to him, "Son— Be fair and be square in the race you must run. Be brave if you lose and be meek if you win, Be better and nobler than I've ever been. Be honest and noble in all that you do And honor the name I have given to you. We will grow up together, I'll too be a boy And share in your trouble and share in your joy. We'll work out problems together and then We will lay out our plans when we both will be men. And oh,, what a wonderful joy this will be, No pleasure in life could be greater for me". We hope this verse opens treasured avenues of family thought for you. Incidentally, we don't know who wrote this poem. If you happen to know, will you be kind enough, please, to write and let us know? MRS. BUDDY HOWARD, HOWARD FUNERAL HOME.
