Dear Mrs. Tepper

Dear Mrs. Tepper,

Iím sorry to hear about your loss,
Iím sorry you have this cross to bear,
And though youíve received condolences,
I too would like to offer a little prayer.

Mrs. Tepper, I know Iím just a stranger,
But if you could hear me for a second please,
I feel so sad about your daughterís passing,
I also want to extend my deepest sympathiesÖ

See, Iím a drum corps fan like many others,
I take a joy in the talent of todayís youth,
But when the news came over the feeds,
It touched my heart to tell you the truth.

When the Crusaders made the announcement,
I felt a pain for a reason I couldnít explain,
And now every time I watch Animal Farm,
Sallyís solo just sounds right as rain.

Mrs. Tepper, I know we may never meet,
And I wish I had the right words to say,
Or enough verses to praise Sallyís talent,
But Iím amazed at the way she used to play.

Dear Mrs. Tepper, I want to send many blessings,
That her voice and music bring fond memories,
And though I may not have the right words,
I quietly weep offering my deepest sympathies.
