Live, love, and laugh; L. H Weise loved a good joke.
He always had one ready, every time we spoke.

Wisdom he imparted, and joy for living, too;
Extraordinarily talented, an artist pure and true.
In life, an inspiration, for he showed us how to live;
Such a soul inspires us to give all we have to give.
Ever in our hearts and on our minds, Leroy Howard Weise.
