Horst was that cool old dude Friend we all have. We grew old so differently. I love to talk to him. That accent, that laugh, those story's. We toasted to his 90th birthday with shots of bourbon just months ago. I had plans to bring him lunch the day he passed. Oh how we wish for that one more day. Rest in peace my friend. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family. May I leave you with this poem.

When I die
Give what’s left of me away
To children
And old men that wait to die.

And if you need to cry,
Cry for your brother
Walking the street beside you
And when you need me,
Put your arms
Around anyone
And give to them
What you need to give to me.

I want to leave you something,
Something better
Than words
Or sounds.

Look for me
In the people I’ve known
Or loved,
And if you cannot give me away,
At least let me live in your eyes
And not on your mind.

You can love me most
By letting
Hands touch hands
By letting
Bodies touch bodies
And by letting go
Of children
That need to be free.

Love doesn’t die,
People do.
So, when all that’s left of me
Is love,
Give me away
