Memorial Message For Jack's Birthday

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

Each year I put a memorial message in the paper to remember Jack. I have normally done this in The Fountain Hills Times, however, since I no longer live in Arizona I put this years memorial in the Iron Mountain Daily News since Jack was born in Norway Michigan and that is the largest paper in that area. Jack would have been 63 on 6-15-12. The memorial message is in the attachment below - at the very end of this message. A musical message called "The Prayer," is in the link which follows immediately allow with the verses to the song "The Prayer."

Presented in memory of Jack - who would have been 63 years old on June 15, 2012


The Prayer


I pray you'll be our eyes

And watch us where we go

And help us to be wise

In times when we don't know

Let this be our prayer

When we lose our way

Lead us to a place

Guide us with your grace

To a place where we'll be safe

La luce che to dai

I pray we'll find your light

Nel cuore restero

And hold it in our hearts

A ricordarchi che

When stars go out each night

L'eterna stella sei

Nella mia preghiera

Let this be our prayer

Quanta fede c'e

When shadows fill our day

Lead us to a place

Guide us with your grace

Give us faith so we'll be safe.

Sognamo un mondo senza piu violenza

Un mondo di giustizia e di speranza

Ognuno dia la mano al suo vicino

Simbolo di pace e di fraternita

La forza che ci dai

We ask that life be kind

E'il desiderio che

And watch us from above

Ognuno trovi amore

We hope each soul will find

Intorno e dentro a se

Another soul to love

Let this be our prayer

Let this be our prayer

Just like every child

Just like every child

Needs to find a place,

Guide us with your grace

Give us faith so we'll be safe

E la fede che

Hai acceso in noi

Sento che ci salvera

What a wonderful idea! It is a truly beautiful rememberance. I was not able to be with Dragon when he died. Those of you who know my story know that I was not "allowed" to be there. I received a text message of his passing. It has been very difficult to find the closure that I need so desperately. I do know that he now knows exactly what happened and why I was not there..that is my comfort that now that he has passed he knows the truth. I want some way for me as a person here on the other side of the state to memorialize him...to make his passing complete for me. Your idea and words may be just what I need to finally obtain the clousure that I need. I will never forget him...he will always be a part of me..and I too wait for the day when I can be with him forever. Sometimes I feel like he is in Philly...just waiting for me to be with him again...and then the hard truth that he is gone hits me again...sigh.....

Thank you for sharing the link and giving me a way of keeping Celene's birthday a special memorial of who she was. Celene loved both Celine Dion and Josh Groban. Thank you for allowing me to feel Celene's presence when watching the video.
