IN MEMORY of Dick Heckett

Some didn't know you well,
but stories were far from few;
A man who was true blue.
Always there for your brothers,
in anytime of need.
You gave openly with your heart,
A genuine soul indeed.
We felt your presence upon us,
as we rode to say our goodbyes
but for all the lives you’ve touch,
the memories will be kept inside.
You’ve traded in your Harley now,
for a pair of angel wings.
We know with you on roll call,
HEAVEN ONE will surely sing.
