A tribute honoring Deacon Emeritus George Boggess buried in Arlington Cemetery with full honors on July 13, 2016

Deacon Boggess already had fame,
Yet we were blessed to honor his name.
When asked the secret of his walk,
“Keep moving” was his counsel talk.

Responsibilities – he would never shirk,
But was always willing to complete the work.
The Pettus Bridge and fight for civil rights:
He acted to relieve some mankind’s plights.

His sacrifices made: more than a few,
A Purple Heart and Silver Star we knew.
In WWII, Patton’s part was large,
But God was truly the One in charge.

Your witness Deacon Boggess was true;
This tribute to remind us anew.
For 104, we thank God for you,
For letting His light always shine through.
