In Memoriam

We fondly remember the players we have lost along the way.

When lilacs last in the dooryard bloom’d,
And the great star early droop’d in the western sky in the night,
I mourn’d, and yet shall mourn with ever-returning spring.

– excerpt, “When Lilacs Last in the Dooryard Bloom’d” by Walt Whitman

Tell all my mourners
To mourn in red —
Cause there ain’t no sense
In my bein’ dead.

– “Wake” by Langston Hughes
