It was a sad day on October 17th, 2004 Waiting for a man, carrying his bagel and coffee A day that will remain in our hearts forevermore The day we lost our dear friend, Daniel Rigby. He had a will that was clad with iron A contagious laugh that would make you smile He had the stride and heart of a lion A man who would always sprint his last mile. He would pick you up if you were down He was ever-ready to suggest a good read He could convince me that my hair isn’t brown If he could see us today, he’d say, “Enough crying, you nancies!” Oh Danny Boy, Danny Boy, how could this be? It was just the other day you walked in the door We were supposed to grow old together, weren’t we? I wanted you to see my full beard, just like yours. A great man you were, and a great man you would be With a rare passion you committed every endeavor You taught us that every good doesn’t come free You will remain in our hearts forever We miss you so much, Daniel Rigby.
