Excerpt from Levi Payson Stone: A Memorial

Some such distinct impression seems to have been made by the character of him whose familiar form is now hidden from our eyes, but whose memory will ever be precious among us. While other excellencies were neither few nor small, there was a certain impression of goodness about him which appeared as a sort of crown upon all the rest. I have remarked how often since his departure the expres sion of surprise and sorrow on learning the sad tidings, has been followed by a summary of character as it existed in the speaker's mind in the words: Well, he was a good man.

It is indeed an enviable life that makes such a mark. And I am sure there is not one who knew him at all inti mately, who would not recognize this title as perhaps more truly descriptive of the man, than any other single qualifying word that could be chosen. Not that there was any lack of positive qualities of another sort. Not that goodness was prominent by reason of the weakness of other virtues. But while there was a rare combination of other excellencies, this one rose above them all, as a sort of halo round the man whose brightness drew peculiar notice. So then if we should Choose one descriptive word, we would say: He was a good man.
