Eulogy To Sir Jack - Poem by MELVIN BANGGOLLAY

J-ust as we look upon your cold and tender body
Lying upon this casket made beautifully
We can’t help but cry and feel empathy
For your untimely demise ending your life story

A-ccountable you were as servant of humanity
While serving as a dynamic PD of DTI family
Specially of this land of wonder and beauty
Where you cradled great dreams for the agency

C-andid you were as a father of your family
Embroidered with flowing love and industry
For you never rest to give them good destiny
Even you have to endure great pains and agony

K-ind you were as a friend and part of DTI family
For you were there sharing your wisdom willingly
To everyone that needed your advice as an elderly
And as an adviser in the field of your own specialty

B-est public service you have exemplified greatly
With an undying desire to serve with quality
Only to give honor and greatness to our agency
In promoting life-giving business opportunity

U-ntimely you left this land and your own family
To be among those who will see God’s beauty
But worry not for your footprints shall always be
In our hearts to remind us to serve unselfishly

N-ever we could relinquish your great memories
Specially the charm of your sweet tender cares,
The beauty of your heart whenever you speak
And the wisdom your humble tongue profess

O-ver the hills and valleys of your hallowed destiny
Your name reigns a tale of great legacy
For you have shown great deeds of your ancestry
Being a trusted public servant of the country

L-ife’s greatness is not measured in one’s posterity
But how meaningful one has shared His glory
That in thy ways you have shown with sincerity
That public service is to serve unselfishly

N-ow that you’re gone for daylight rest for thee eternally
To be in the other world where we will someday be
We offer nothing but our prayers and praises for thee
That may the Lord lead you to that hallowed destiny

A-dmirable friend and great servant of DTI family
Your farewell is a great loss to us and our agency
But we couldn’t help but to bid you goodbye today
And pray upon the Lord’s domain you’ll rest eternally.
