I'm looking at the 78 recording of "Old Man Atom" that my folks bought when it was new, which still looks and sounds pretty good considering how often I played it then and since. I met Sam once, at D. K. Wilgus's funeral. Sam sang "Only Remembered".

"Only the truths that in life we have spoken,
Only the seeds that on earth we have sown.
These will pass onward while we are forgotten,
Fruits of the harvest and what we have done."

I hadn't heard the song before but will never forget it.
