Far Too Soon

He fought the good fight

for many years

Stoic

Yet…so

much fun

Loved his

daughter…

teaching…

his kids and

his classroom…

music…

and

Life

He left us all too soon…

having so many

things yet to do

A true friend

to all he met

We miss you

our dear

Sam

This poem was written to honor the memory of my friend and former colleague Sam El-Saleh.  He passed away suddenly and unexpectedly last month.  Today is his memorial service where I will be reading this poem, if I can do so without crying.  A copy will be given to his daughter and one to the campus where he taught for many years.  He was a remarkable individual and his daughter and teaching was his life.  He is truly missed.
