    I was inspired to write this for all of our brothers that pass from this world and I feel compelled to share it with each observance of loss. This time it is for my good friend Tony. I will truly miss him....



    When I Die

    When I die, do this for me; tell my family on the BOC.
    Their true blue friends, and would want to know.
    That the Lord called me, and I had to go.

    When I die, do this too; accept the love they offer you.
    They will want to help, in any way they can.
    The day I touch our dear Lords hand.

    When I die, do this for them; tell them thanks for all they’ve been.
    Partners and buddies, my brothers and sisters
    Old or young they all were my teachers.

    When I die, do this for others; pray that they can all become brothers.
    So they can feel the joy, and pride I have known
    In this BOC that I called home.

    When I die, one last request, don’t bury me like all the rest.
    There may be lakes and rivers, where I soon will abide
    And I’ll want my gear close by my side.
