    • Not mine, I’m afraid.
      I should have acknowledged Robert Burns, after the quotation marks ~ sorry.
      He wrote it as part of an epitaph to a friend…..

      “An honest man here lies at rest,
      As e’er God with his Image blest:
      A friend of man, the friend of truth,
      The friend of age and guide of youth;
      Few hearts like his-with virtue warm’d,
      Few heads with knowledge so informed:
      If there’s another world, he lives in bliss;
      If there is none, he made the best of this.”

      For William Muir, who died in 1793.
