The following poem was written by Ern Caldwell and dedicated to Mr. Wood:


Ase we stand, with bowed down

We asked that question, "Why?"
Can it be true, that he is dead?
There's a tear drop in your eye.
Mild mannered, with courage

Service was his great desire.
Ne'er did he do a man wrong.
His only enemy, "A Fire."
May God look down from up

And help each of us to try
To picture him, the one we love,
At his station in the sky.
