Thomas J. Dooley


Mr. Mac

Had slant in his smile

He walked with style

Find a penny, and he'd pick it up

Take a vision to reality is what he loved


Mr. Mac

With the passion of an eagle

The focus of a turtle 

God shows him past all the hurdles

It made troubles seem so little


Mr. Mac

Took a boy from the street

Shown him what he could be

Changing him into a man

Taught him how to take on responsibilities 


Mr. Mac

There is a spirit in your strength

When you speak, it makes me think

Challenge me in all my dreams

Now I am on the path that I can see


Mr. Mac

Father, husband, brother, a friend

The titles never end

Sleep through a conversation

But always gave words of wisdom


Mr. Mac

You brought prayer at noon

Now you're gone too soon

In the lap of GOD, you now can rest


The memory of you

Challenges us to be our best
