“When I come to the end of the Horizon
And enter the other shore
Remember me with fondness.
Cry for me no more.
I have found my final resting place
That special spot to fish
Remember the times that we shared
You too, I will miss
This is the journey I must take,
and I must go alone
Know that my heart is with you,
as I take this journey home.
To that final fishing hole
For fishermen like me
To tell the biggest fishing tales
About the one that got away
Remember me with fondness
This is not goodbye
It is “Till we meet again”
At the fishing hole in the sky. “
