LLR Dan.  We'll meet again someday Brother.

In times like these, words are sometimes hard to find.  It's not easy to sum up all you feel when you lose someone close to you. Especially in a "constrained" venue such as this blog page.  As has always been the case in my life though, music usually presents the words you're looking for.   Thanks to Temple Of The Dog for these:

Please, mother mercy

Take me from this place

And the long winded curses

I hear in my head

Words never listen

And teachers, oh, they never learn

But I warm from the candle

Though I feel too cold to burn

He came from an island

And he died from the street

And he hurt so bad like a soul breaking

But he never said nothing to me, yeah

So say hello 2 heaven

Heaven, heaven

So say hello 2 heaven

Heaven, heaven, yeah

New like a baby

An' lost like a prayer

The sky was your playground

But the cold ground was your bed

Ooh, I said poor stargazer

She's got no tears in her eyes

But smooth like a whisper

She knows that love heals all wounds with time

Now it seems like too much love

Is never enough, yeah

You better seek out another road

'Cause this one has ended abrupt, oh oh

Say hello 2 heaven

Heaven, heaven

Say hello 2 heaven

Heaven, heaven

Say hello 2 heaven

Heaven, heaven

I, I never wanted

To write these words down for you

With the pages of phrases

Of things, we'll never do

Yeah, so I blow out, out the candle

And I put you to bed since you can't say to me now

How the dogs broke your bone

There's just one thing left to be said, yeah yeah

Say hello 2 heaven

Heaven, yeah

Say hello 2 heaven

Heaven, yeah

Rest In Peace Bro.  This is a big loss to the local motorcycle community .. as funeral arrangements are made, I'll post them here or on my facebook page.  In the meantime, please pray for Dans family.
