An Oldies But Goodies Salute to Our Old Friend!

We stood by the stream, the weather warm for a November evening, saying our last goodbyes to Pete, our old friend. Like always we questioned why we are born just to die and leave such grief and pain behind us.

As we stood there, Jeff pulled out an old cassette tape that we all had contributed to when we were young. On the tape were the songs that each one of us wanted our friends to play to remember us after we died. Pete had chosen Stairway to Heaven by Led Zeppelin. We listened to the song, tears running down our faces, believing that if anyone got to go to Heaven, it was Pete, the most religious and compassionate of the whole lot of us

I believe we were not just mourning Pete, but thinking that soon our songs will play, too. Mine will be Marvin Gaye’s What’s Going On. I want people moving and grooving at my last hurrah!
