A Great Leader

The Hamilton Spectator - - HEALTH - BY ADAM DU­FOUR, NATE DASS, JACK OR­MOND AND CHAR­LIE SORBARA, GRADE 7

You were not like the rest of them, You were the best of them. You were made of great courage, And you would never dis­cour­age.

With a heart of gold, You never made us feel bad even when you’d scold. You were al­ways smil­ing even when it was rough, You told us to stand up and be tough.

Each day you did your best. And you didn’t ex­pect none the less. You taught us when we wanted to even the score, That work­ing to­gether, we’d achieve more.

We are left with an im­print of you, A role model through and through.

In lov­ing mem­ory of Mr. Phil Oliveira
