Marquette Neighborhood Saddened Tonight By Passing Of Friend And Community Member
Tonight our neighborhood and community are very saddened by the passing of a friend who brightened the way with his conversation and smile. Hearts have been heavy since hearing the news at Thanksgiving of his illness. There are no mere words to convey the way we feel. Often music is the best route to expressing what is inside. In 1995 when a death struck my family someone, after giving me a hug, opened my suit jacket and slipped a piece of paper into my pocket. That paper held the words to this song—and I hope it finds a way to comfort others tonight.
