Ode to Ray

January 16, 2013
By Tom Baideme , Westfield Republican / Mayville Sentinel News

Well the village lost another

Favorite son from an accident

Returning home from returning Amish

A flurry of white and ice brings loss again

The fire chief for many years

The driving force behind the roast

Wonder who will claim the honor

If they'll have it again at all

Used to be the neighbor behind

When I led a life on Spring

Many years would work up the garden

So we could share a space to grow

Once he gave what thought was seized

But with a pull it came to life

Used it to mow for many years

Someone used it even more

But that won't be happening now

So sad to lose another friend

To the winter hand of fate

That seemed to come around again

So my prayers go out for him

To God to greet him at the gate

And keep Ray with him evermore

Until rejoined with friends and mate
