Daniel Gardner Hibbitts
In one of the stars I shall be living
In one of them I shall be laughing
And so it will be
As if all the stars were laughing
when you look at the sky at night.
—The Little Prince,
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
Daniel spoke through
the glitter in his eyes,
the fullness of his smile,
the impish playfulness.
With the innocent joy of a child.
His purpose was to teach. It was up
to us to pay attention.
We give thanks for a teacher of God’s
natural joy and love who has been
Thank you for sharing in the celebration
of the life of Daniel Gardner Hibbitts.
