    • POEM: Abou Ben Adhem by James Henry Leigh Hunt (8/21/2007 2:39:00 PM)

      My father, Luther Gehring, date of birth November 2,1916, just recently passed away, July 8,2007 from cancer at 90 years of age. In July,2006 at age 89, he woke one morning and recited about 95% of this poem to my mother. She had never heard this from him in the 62 years she has known him. He was undergoing chemotherapy at the time for his cancer. Then again, June/July,2007,90 years of age, a week or two before his death, she asked him to recite the poem again and he did. I had a local minister research and find the origin of this poem. It has given my mother chills of hearing of this poem and wishes she could know when my father memorized this poem in his lifetime. It has come to mean so much to all of us.
