Theirs were the gentlest souls, the ones who stride with angels while bringing Heaven through the common touch. Jimmy offered a nation courage in war, And Charles covered a nation's horrors from war. Jimmy allowed one to believe in Harvey the Bunny, And Charles brought one to people, the hearty and funny. Jimmy's eyes glistened with depths of feelings, And Charles' eyes twinkled from breadths of creatings. Jimmy whispered about the lion's roar, And Charles took time to show an eagle soar. Jimmy helped us to never regret the past, And Charles taught us to never drive by so fast. They inspired through simple pleasures and gentle modesty: worthy treasures. They both proved how precious we each are from when born. May we always remember their smiles, lest we forever be forlorn. "Twiddly, widdly, toodle-loo..."; Dearest Charles and Jimmy: we'll miss you.
