tim: good night

Timothy John Russert, Jr. 
May 7, 1950 – June 13, 2008

Oh all the comrades that e'er I've had,
they are sorry for my going away

And all the sweethearts that e'er I've had, 
they would wish me one more day to stay

But since it falls unto my lot 
that I should rise and you should not

I'll gently rise and I'll softly call 
good night and joy be with you all

-- The Parting Glass (trad.)
