 A Reading for Shaun Miller 2012 

 An angel you are, were and forever will be  

 sent to earth to ignite the flame within us all  

 to remember why we came. 

 Just as God sent his only beloved son to save the world. 

 He has come, he is gone and he will come again. 

 To all who knew Shaun for however long – or short  

 he spread his message of peace and love  

 to be loved, and to know love  

 to the fullest unconditionally, 

  just as he loved. 

 As young as Shaun was, to us who know him  

 he was ageless – a leader, a friend, a dear loved one 

 who will continue to spread his message of peace and love  

 in all that he did during his short stay  

 with everyone who passed his way   

 messages he leaves for us all  

 from here to Heaven, forever more. 

 With Love and all that Love means. 

 Much love from us all who truly love you Shaun.
