Love finds afar eve's eager star,
This is our thought of you."

Here lies the body of old Jack ClarkeA man with a heart of gold
His money he couldn't take with him,
of this he often told.
But now that jack is gone I suppose it's time to tell
he left no relation
So instead of leaving it to the Government boys ,
he left it to the Cancer Foundation.
