A friend and church member passed away this past April. He was a big, fun-loving guy, very active in our church, and even ran the soundboard for the CL7 a couple times. He knew he was dying, and able to help plan his own service, but then the pandemic came and we were unable to celebrate his life together in person. Our pastor orchestrated a wonderful memorial service, with videos from his family and friends, her own homily and prayers, and music from the church.
Our friend had asked that we sing at his service, and since we couldn’t physically do that, we and the family picked a song that we had sung in church and recorded previously. I think the lyrics are pretty good at painting a picture of the wonderful approach to life that our friend always exhibited, from before his diagnosis all the way to his passing. I hope you’ll enjoy it; it’s called Love Like I’m Leavin’.
