Linda Was a Friend of Mine”….
…a poem I wrote last year.
And now we’ve lost our Marty too,
He too, a friend most dear.

Now Marty bled H-F-M-A,
He loved this group a lot.
Let us remember him this way.
With all the pride we’ve got.

Marty was our President
In nineteen eighty-five.
Number thirty-five he was
He served with heart and drive.

And through the years his efforts for
The Chapter are legend;
Historian and other jobs,
On whom we could depend.

Marty served in Vietnam,
The Air Force was his pride.
Another note that drew us close,
Veterans side by side.

But as Marty has left us now
I feel that I should speak
The thanks I feel for knowing him
He was a man….UNIQUE.

I’m thankful for his close friendship,
I’m thankful he’s ….UNIQUE.
UNIQUE’S defined as “only one”,
And that’s a fair critique.

I’m thankful Marty was my boss,
A friend both then and now.
I’m thankful that he liked to dance,
(I wish that he knew how).

I’m thankful that he taught me all
About Healthcare Finance.
(From CPA…to JMH…
Reduced my arrogance.)

I’m thankful for the many times
He played the party’s host.
(He’d keep refreshments flowing till
My whole body was toast.)

I’m thankful that Marty made me
Join in H-F-M-A.
I followed his example and
It sure showed me the way.

But most of all, for those of us
Who knew him through the years,
We’re thankful for the man he was
And that he kept us near.

So let me stop my rambling
With one last thing to say,
I’m thankful for the years we had,
|I’ll miss him every day.

With Love and Respect
