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

among us.


Thank you for sharing in the celebration

of the life of Daniel Gardner Hibbitts.
