ED AND VERA

 


Edgar and Vera are together today
In that wonderful place called Heaven,

How many times should we thank them for life? --
Maybe seventy-seven times seven,

One of them went on to high school --
The other the school of hard knocks,

We could never repay all their kindnesses
With all the gold in Fort Knox,

"A Double Portion" of good fortune had we --
Being part of, "Us four and no more,"

Delmar and Wilford will need thousands of years
To even the "Endless Love" score.
