My Tribute To Terry

By Dean King

March 16, 2001

 

It was a sunny spring morning in 1994,

While drinking coffee at the local café,

That Terry and I were discussing in depth

Our "Things to Do" list for that day.

The subject of leaning and broken tombstones

Somehow crept into our quiet conversation.

And that was the meager, but noble beginning

Of this area’s cemetery restoration.

The Buckner Russell plot was first on our list.

We reset rocks weighing nearly a ton.

When finished we took a good look at our work

And agreed THIS hard labor was fun.

Yes, there’s been adequate satisfaction and pride

To see hundreds of damaged headstones reset.

All because of old rundown graveyards,

And the concern of Terry Lyndon Jett.

Now Terry has sold his last aluminum can

To help pay for materials and mowing.

‘Cause now he’s wearing a jeweled crown on his head

Where that River of Life keeps on flowing.
