Original text and translations
Henry Hetland said he'd be surprised if he woke up in an afterlife.
His friends said he was deep, sensitive, lovable, life-loving,
admirable, gentle, kind and peaceful.
He lived his convictions with true social conscience, magnetism,
wit and warmth, life and love.
He was a mentor, a cherished friend, a gem.
Some suspect he also got a surprise.
May peace be upon a peaceful man.
