In The Arms Of An Angel



In the arms of an angel No words could be more fitting I raise my voice in loving tribute To Ken with your permitting A celebration of this loving soul Such a kind and gentle man Always upbeat, ready with a smile As each new day began In the arms of an angel Looking from above with a smile Always ready with a kindly word In spite of all life's trials Dear, dear, sweet Marguerite The love of Ken's existence Will journey forward hand in hand Together still, though distant So everyone's here to celebrate This special bond he possessed With each and every one of us As a friend, he was the best May he forever rest in peace. © Jack Ellison 2013 For my good friend Ken, which I wrote for his "Celebration of Life" ceremony .

    After reciting my poem, Cathie sang Sarah McLachlan's "In The Arms Of An Angel"... without musical accompaniment! She has an absolutely AMAZING voice! She blows me away! There weren't too many dry eyes! xox

    Friends like Ken don't come along often but when they do, you know it's different and special!
