Poem For Gerald (Jerry) Miller

A man of bravery
in face of danger;
This kind of man
who helps a stranger.

We saw in him
during someone's blindness;
A man of stature
of courage and kindness.

A gallant gesture
to save another;
Greater love
you showed our brother.

In one last act
of noble spirit;
You gave your life
and did not fear it.

As we reflect now
profoundly sorry;
Yet, know this awaits you
a crown of glory.
