to becky, from her lawyers

its not easy to be patient
its not easy to be wise
its not easy to inspire
or lift hopes as you advise
 
yet you did it for us all
we who thought ourselves much smarter
as you taught us how our brilliance
often made our own jobs harder
 
you commanded, not demanded
a respect not often shown
expecting all to share the same
and treat each as their own
 
you fostered pride in what we did
encouraged each to be their best
but noted it was as a team
that our value was assessed
 
as teammate, coach, and pep squad
you built a dynasty
and every player playing
owes to you, in large degree
 
a debt of gratitude beyond
what simple words can say
for lessons learned and memories
that will a lifetime stay.
