Ode to James
Jim Cragan, Jim Cragan, where are you bro'?
We hope you're here with us, 'cause we want you to know
How much your idea for this book club has meant
To all of us members - and look where it went!
To wonderful places... the characters we've met,
20 years on the journey, but it's not over yet.
So, thank you dear Jimmy, for bringing us here
For giving a purpose and making it clear,
That life is much fuller whenever we care
to read the great writings and verses we share.
by Francis Joseph Hasler III
(thank you Joe, from all of us!)
