.

Fellow Passions members,
It is always so difficult to announce the illness or passing
of another Passions member.

This evening, I would ask you to gather in prayer
and leave your condolences for our Sunshine/Karilea,
whose brother Fagin/Robert, Passions member, writer & musician, passed on to a better place earlier today.

Please join hands with me in a circle of love and prayer
for Karilea and the family.

Karilea has asked me to share these words with you as well...

.
  
"Please let the PiP members know that I am so proud that my brother Fagin [Robert] found the community that has been my home for so many years, appreciated so many of you; exchanged some words with fellow songwriters, and today, after a surgery that would have hopefully been able to send him home, even with his emphysema,

he fought hard, until the blood clot hit his heart.

Around 10:00 a.m. this morning, on a Sunday, February 5, 2006, in California, Robert Charles Rilling sought the sound of music.  It was his soul.  In so many of you, he found a community of life, of love, and living, and tried as he could, to be a part of my life, as he had given parts of his life, to music, and religion, as he saw it.

In this, our final years, days, and hours, we learned of a new appreciation that in reality, had always been ours.  Just as this same gift, belongs to all of you.  Please know that Robert saw in each of you that he was able to read, a very special gift.  One of understanding, compassion, and yes, even anger, and he understood that, very well, indeed.

He was pleased with his short time here, in PiP.  He was proud of his music, and grateful for our parents, who taught him so much.  He tried at one time, to lean away from certain things, only to find himself coming home.

He is truly at home now.  

Many of you have lost a beloved.  In that loss, you have come to grow, and nurture others in their loss.  All Robert, or I, might ever ask for, is that you always continue to love those who have lost someone, even if it only be a dear animal, or even a garden...

for he and I would have, and will always, understand."

There is no such thing as "ready," no such thing as "long enough"....not when one we love is lost. There's also no such thing as comfort, but you know my thoughts, Karilea. You know my thoughts.

I am so terribly sorry to hear this news Karilea, and may it help you at this time to remember what a driving force he was in your going forward with your book.  May you find your soul comforted by the memory of a brother pushing you forward because he believed in you.  Now you can draw comfort from the memories of your life together as you knew it on this plain, and may that bring you some comfort.  May his soul now rest in eternal peace.

Dearest Karilea

When words are not enough
for the mourning deep inside
I'll send you lots of knuffels
by a peaceful white dove's flight

And when you're sad, just listen
to the sound of her white wings
Then you'll know he is not far
touching his musical strings

You will smile in knowledge of
that he has found a final place
Where you will meet again some time
when you have reached your end of days

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

You and your family are in my heart sweet friend


Like scattered leaves...my words will flow
