No matter where we might roam
We'll never find a more beautiful place
Like our Hechtman home
Your generosity, kindness and thoughtfulness
Made our dreams come true
Because ten years ago 100 people were made
Happy because of you
Hechtman Apartments were built because you
Were so giving
And now senior citizens enjoy
Where they are living
In a short time another 100 apartments were built
And that was just fine
It was because of you
You were one of a kind
You did wonderful things for us
Right from the start
We will always remember you
You'll forever be in our hearts.
May you rest in peace.
