      - A Tribute to James Hepworth On His 85th Birthday -
      What a privilege to live
      To be old as a tree,
      A well-spent life conscience clear,
      Traveling on to Eternity.

      We all come here, a mission to fill
      And Uncle Jim has done it well
      He is leaving behind a score or more,
      Children as numerous as sands on the shore.

      There is no greater monument
      That man can build on earth
      He struggled hard and kept the faith
      Since the morning of his birth.

      And so today at eighty fifth
      We lay our garlands at his feet
      Uncle Jim, hold up your head,
      Your life has been complete.

      ~Lavina Mann Argyle
