In Memoriam, Bruce Murray
Jay W Preston
October 19, 2013
Out beyond earth is such a sight,Out where the sun casts a dim light. That’s where our cameras are destined to go, To beam back to earth such a wonderful show. Bruce broached an idea to powers that be, To send out the cameras to see what’s to see. Some images great, some images small, Sent back to us from the planets, all. Bruce’s mem’ry lives on in images made. While some here on earth wish we had stayed. So now he is gone to where we all must. To mingle with his beloved cosmical dust. 10/19/2013
