We shared a great neighbourhood,
And quickly friendships formed.
We enjoyed casual dinners together.
We laughed and toasted one another
At the very best lake gatherings.
Keg dinners. Bond fires.
A bottle of Crown, the other Gibson.
Laughter booming into the nights
Amidst a steady stream of stories.
Kind, oh so kind buddy and friend,
We never thought you'd leave us
So quickly without goodbyes.
With laden hearts we think of you.
And in our memories you'll forever be.
