Michael's Journey Through the Stars

O7, Michael. Rest in Peace.



Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of Earth
And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;
Sunward I’ve climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth
Of sun-split clouds, – and done a hundred things
You have not dreamed of – wheeled and soared and swung
High in the sunlit silence. Hov’ring there,
I’ve chased the shouting wind along, and flung
My eager craft through footless halls of air…
Up, up the long, delirious burning blue
I’ve topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace
Where never lark, or ever eagle flew –
And, while with silent, lifting mind I’ve trod
The high untrespassed sanctity of space,
Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.



"High Flight" by John Gillespie Magee (1922 - 1941)
 
To Forum Moderators: With all due respect, it may be time to archive the thread.

I think the Elite Community showed great compassion, comradery, sympathy, spirit and respect for a fallen Commander, taken too soon from us, whom will be missed immensely by all.

Rest In Peace Michael. You are loved and missed by all here....
