Sincerity is not for the weak.
You showed them that.
We garnered our respect for your strength:
Your toughness, innovation, and determination.
You left a legacy, dear legend.
I saw into their hearts to see yours.
Thanks for raising honesty and genuity1
Upon a shining pedestal.
That’s where you belong, too,
And I hope your values continue to break through.
- Genuineness. Yes, I make up words. [↩]
