Tell me what does it look like in heaven Is it peaceful? Is free like they say? Does the sun shine bright forever Have your fears and your pain gone away [Pre-hook:] 'Cause here on earth it feels like everything good is missing since you left And here on earth everything's different, there's an emptiness [Hook:] Oh-oh, I, I hope you're dancing in the sky I hope you're singing in the angel's choir I hope the angels know what they have I'll bet it's so nice up in heaven since you arrived [Verse 2:] So tell me, what do you do up in heaven Are your days filled with love and light Is there music? Is there art and invention? Tell me are you happy? Are you more alive? [Pre-Hook:] 'Cause here on earth it feels like everything good is missing since you left And here on earth everything's different, there's an emptiness [Hook:] Oh-oh, I, I hope you're dancing in the sky And I hope you're singing in the angel's choir And I hope the angels know what they have I'll bet it's so nice up in heaven since you arrived I hope you're dancing in the sky And I hope you're singing in the angel's choir And I hope the angels know what they have I'll bet it's so nice up in heaven since you arrived Since you arrived "Danny and Lizzy song"

O'Magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt his name together. I sought the Lord and he heard me, and delivered me from my fears. They looked unto him, and were lighted: and their faces were not ashamed. This poor man cried and the Lord heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles. My brother Michael, a part of each and everyone that knew you, went with you, the day the Lord took you home. Peace be with you always. We will love and miss you every day of the rest of our lives. Until we meet again.
