Mom, It has been six years since you were recalled to the Glory of God's Kingdom and we still have you in our hearts. There isn't a day that goes by that you don't share your presence, especially when you dance in the morning. "I danced in the morning when the world was begun, and I danced in the moon and the stars and the sun, and I came down from heaven and I danced on the earth, at Bethlehem I had my birth. Dance, then, wherever you may be, I am the Lord of the Dance said he, and I'll lead you all, wherever you may be, and I'll lead you all in the Dance, said He. I danced for the scribe and the pharisee, but they would not dance and they wouldn't follow me, I danced for the fishermen, for James and John - they came with me and the dance went on. I dance on the Sabbath and I cured the lame; the holy people said it was a shame, they whipped and they stripped and they hung me on high, and they left me there on a Cross to die. I danced on a Friday when the sky turned black; it's hard to dance with the devil on your back. They buried my body and they thought I'd gone, but I am the Dance and I still go on. They cut me down and I leapt up high; I am the life that'll never, never die; I'll live in you if you'll live in me - I am the Lord of the Dance, said He".
Your loving Family,
Dad, Jay Jr., Teri, Shiela and Jim
