What's new

Memorials Thread/RIP :sad:

Not open for further replies.

Wisened One

Started a thread so Emma could place any/all the posts of our fellow comrades (and others...) who have passed on, Staff/SO, current and/or X's, celebs,etc.. scn or not.

Maybe if we made RIP Threads for all the various Orgs/AO's that would help people look up those they knew?

For now, let's place them all here....



From my Org (Miami):

Claire Jeans, Qual Sec
Tom Madigan, HGC Auditor
Rick CoCo, Public
Dave Tomberlin, Former Purif I/C, Auditor, Public.

(there are more, will add soon).

Good idea. Have posted some of this info elsewhere, but old friends I know of who have passed on are:

John Harvey (AOSHUK)
Arthur Cusworth (AOSHUK)
Amir Geuron (NOTs auditor)
Pamela Harris/Flood/Thompson (originally Leeds Mission)
Howard Thompson (was ED Leeds Mission)
Shiona Fox-Ness (FOLOUK?)




An excellent idea WO. A restful still and silent thread for them all to mingle and relax. May they all rest in deep peace and love and I hope also having some fun and much freedom. :yes: :heartflower:

Chuck Lemmer, died at Hemet Gold base in 2005.

Chuck, you stayed with it till the bitter end. 59 years old,
too young to die in this modern world. What was your
OT level? Cancer was it? Did you really believe right up to
the end it was all in your mind?

What was your last thought..."what a waste"?
I have to hand it to you though, you really took that bit
about "loyalty" seriously. You took that till "death do us
part" a bit too far when you got married to the cult.

Anything you can do to help your wife, Kathy, escape?
They got her locked up physically as well as mentally out
there in their little stalag. No Colonel Klink running that
place, no jolly old Seargent Shultz in those barracks.

In Memoriam

For all of them. For all of us. For you, and for me.

Prayer (Do Not Stand At My Grave And Cry) - Lizzie West vocal

Lizze West's lyrics said:
"Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there, I do not sleep
I am a thousand winds that flow
I am the sunlight on ripened grain

I am gentle autumn's rain
I am the swift uplifting rush
of quiet birds in circled flight

Do not stand at my grave and cry
Do not stand at my grave and cry
Do not stand at my grave and cry
I am not there, I did not die

Man as of yet is half-grown
Even his flower stem has not appeared yet
He is all leaves and roots, without a sign of stem in sight
Blossoming means establishing a new, pure relationship with the cosmos

It is the sign of heaven
It is the sign of a cobra
It is the sign of a man who knows himself, royally
Crowned with the sun
His feet gripping the earth as he goes

We have arrived

Do not stand at my grave and cry
Do not stand at my grave and cry
Do not stand at my grave and cry
I am not there, I did not die
I am not there, I did not die"

Do Not Stand At My Grave And Weep - Instrumental
