9. For a human being who gave so much to his Earth, this is his hymn of

what he wants to give back. Most of us can only raise our voices, and hope to continue down the -sometimes difficult -path he started us on.

Farewell Pete.
You made so many lives better,
cheered the hearts of generations of children.
It was a privilege singing along with you

Grant me, and all of us, the strength and courage to keep on "strugglin on..."
singing a 'Seeger song'

My life goes on in endless song
Above earth's lamentations,
I hear the real, though far-off hymn
That hails a new creation.

No storm can shake my inmost calm,
While to that rock I'm clinging.
Since love is lord of heaven and earth
How can I keep from singing?
