In Memory

If the measure of a man
is the size of his heart
and the number of lives
deeply touched in knowing him,
then Kevin Joseph Frances Hagen
was as large as they come.

Open & giving,
not for himself nor personal gain;
that was Kevin to the core.
He embraced all he met,
big grin & warm interest,
thrilled by each new meeting,
excited to share his time,
eager to teach or learn.

We are left blessed
to have known him,
enriched by his goodness,
wanting just one more hour
to bask in his warmth.

Thanks for the memories,
Kevin J. Hagen
