Lift your voice with the song of mourning, the grief for those whose lives are lost, abreviated, and done. Lift your voice with the song of mourning, remembering their goodness, and vowing to carry on that goodness for a little further, giving it away and watching that goodness grow. As the legacy of goodness grows, give thanks and rejoice to witness and to help that gift that once was part of the heart of someone we cherished still lives and thrives and blesses. Lift your voice with the song of gladness, to have known such people, to have been so blessed, and to be one of the caretakers of sharing and bearing those blessings, adding to them, and witnessing how love changes the world. Lovers of Life, let us sing our songs of mourning, hope, and gladness, and bear one another up and on, boldly and steadfastly living for love's sake. Amen.
