My hero was someone I met.

We met in Greece,

On my family vacation.

He was the first to make me smile,

To make me laugh.

He made my parents stop fighting,

To make them listen.

He brought joy to the group,

To make us have fun.

We all were upset

When we found him close to death.

We all loved him as a friend.

His name, I will always remember.

It was Irv Giddeon.
