“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.”
