Welcome Home
written by L J Coon

Welcome home my friend, from so much suffering
Welcome home my friend, step out of the pain
It’s ok to cry, we've all seen tears before
Its ok my friend welcome home

Talk of love one’s lost, so many years ago
And how you hurt inside, till no more tears would flow
Let the healing start, you can't look back no more
Its ok my friend welcome home

Welcome home, from so much suffering
Welcome home, step out of the pain
It’s ok to cry, we've all seen tears before
Its ok my friend, welcome home

Could I somehow sooth, your pain that lives within
If you just let go, the healing will begin
Holding on so tight, letting go is half the test
Its ok my friend welcome home

Welcome home, from so much suffering
Welcome home, step out of the pain
It’s ok to cry, we've all seen tears before
Its ok my friend, welcome home

It’s ok my friend…the pain won't hurt, no more ...

I fondly remember Prof. Bell flying model planes at Herron Hill field. the old ones that was attached to a guide wire.
After he started the plane I would hold it until he ran t get the wire and fly the plane I truly enjoyed those time with Prof. Bell. Even at that young age I looked up to him and admired him.
My heartfelt condolences to Prof. Bell's family

Thank you Mr. Bell for your unceasing commitment to opening the doors of equal opportunity for all. Without your effort, we would be left with trying to open the doors instead of forging through them. Thank you, and may you rest in peace for a job well done!!

This is to thank Atty. Bell for his legacy. To stand for what he believed took courage and conviction. I am glad to be reminded that pioneers, as he, paved the way. Blessings to Atty. Bell's family. May he rest in peace and may we always remember.

Thank you, Attorney Derrick Bell
