I just learned that my friend, Bill Metzger, will be leaving us soon. The best way that I can think of to honor him is to share a few of his words with you and a bit of his singing. First, the words; these are from a letter that he dictated recently.
I’ve been discovering how unbelievably loved and blessed I am. There are so many that I love and love me surrounding me. I feel this love from and to you everyday now. I could have never imagined how good this could be. Words certainly cannot express it very well and that’s what I have. We are all so beautiful in the ways we come to support each other and I have enjoyed this love and support from you . It’s unfathomable and I want you to know I have had a most beautiful and extraordinary life with the privilege and love in being here with you on this journey.
I would never have imagined how rich and full my life could be. How wonderful, so wonderful to share it with all of you. I feel God with you everyday.
It is truly and honor and a blessing to be a human and a part of the planet and with all of you, parts of God that you are. And while you may miss me, I will always feel you and if you want to feel my presence, just mention my name and I will be honored and blessed to be there.
Bill is a musician, singer, songwriter. Here is a snippet from The Memphis Men (14 MB, be patient).
Farewell, Bill. I will remember you.
Update: Bill passed away today, December 13, at about 3:30pm.
