I wanted to post something in respect of Stan's passing. This aws the closest I could come

http://www.soundclick.com/player/single_player.cfm?songid=6295305&q=hi


MARCIE'S GONE

(verse)
The Thursday morning bridge club met again today
Just me and Jane and Sara, Marcie couldn't play
That Marcie, there's a fighter, it's been eight years she's survived
But today we've got an empty chair, cause Friday Marcie died

(chorus)
And we cried a little
But we laughed a lot
We didn't talk that much about we'd lost, more about what we've got
Memories of her smile and a spirit that lives on
In each of us, now that Marcie's gone.

(verse)
We tried to celebrate her at the funeral home
We eulogized the fun times with the friend we'd known
There were chick flicks, even Chippendale's one time on girls night out
And winters skating with our kids at the outdoor rink downtown

(repeat chorus)

(bridge)
So I opened up her favorite wine
And we drank to happier days
Marcie would have wanted it that way
Yeah,

(repeat chorus)

Bill,

This is a wonderful write. I really can't say much else. There wasn't a thing I didn't like about it and speaks of a friend's death the way I think we all hope our loved ones deal with our own passing.

Thanks, Al. Stan was a great influence here and I'm sure we're all filled with happy remembrances of him

Thanks, Dave. I'm sure Stan would have liked us to substitute a beer in the bridge and just remember the good times

That's really beautiful, Bill! And it even had a little spiciness of the Chippendale's that Stan would have liked -- lol! -- Lisa

Thanks so much, Lisa. I think I remember Stan saying once that he was a Chippendale dancer back in his younger days
