Here's To The Greatest Engineer - James (Scotty) Doohan - That Star Trek Has Ever Known - Poem by Velmar Pewee Hale Johnson

When once the trumpet sounded, and Heaven called thee home,
No more upon this earth, thine precious feet shall roam.
Memories, there are many, happy times, and some that are sad,
But, Jimmy, I want thee to know, ye are one of the greatest actors Hollywood has ever had.
When the old shows of, 'Star Trek' are being watched by thine fans,
All will know ye are safe in Heaven in thine father's hands.
Tears are shed for thine passing, and hearts shall feel thy lose,
But ye have gone to join God, and, Jesus who died upon the cross.
When dreams of thee invade our nights with thine sweet angelic face,
Those dreams of thee will most certainly be of ye in thine holy grace.
