Poems by Murray Poets and Poems About Murray County
From deep within their soul,
A candle burning, burning bright,
Before their time with us too soon is gone.
Such was this special person with gentle kindness toward everyone,
He never met a stranger or let anyone ever feel alone.
Danny was good to one and all,
A sweeter person never lived,
He endured life's hardships uncomplaining
And taught us patience and what true friendship is.
We were so blessed God allowed us in his time on earth,
To be our friend to bask in the light of his sweet soul and quiet mirth.
My greatest joy is that I knew you and could call you friend.
My greatest sorrow is that you are with us no more in this earthly realm.
Such humility and gentle-manness in an individual one could not comprehend,
Who will light the candle of our hearts now
That we have lost Danny, compassion's eternal friend…
REST IN EVERLASTING PEACE, DANNY
Written by former Murray County resident Anita Heaton ( now living in Saudi Arabia ) in tribute to her beloved life-long friend, firefighter Danny Lamar Hall, who died December 11, 2006.
