Jack . . .
Twenty-one years have passed since you went away,
Yet not a single day passes that we forget -- nay.
We watch your productions and write your fan fiction.
No, it's not an affliction, nor is it addiction.
Rather, it's deep appreciation for all that you taught,
The principles, the values, and all that we ought.
The dedication to work and devotion to Marie,
The discipline of self and more than we can see.
Thank you, Jack, for letting us share
One small part of you, of all you did care.
For raising the bar a little bit higher
For giving quality to all that through you did transpire.
