    Kevin mentioned that the entire podcast crew went to see Wicked on 4-27-08. Wicked is one of my all-time favorites. I was bawling in the car when I listened to "For Good" this morning. This is my way of relating my feelings to all of you Dis fans, the podcast crew, and Bob's family.

    "For Good"
    by Stephen Schwartz (copyrighted)

    I'VE HEARD IT SAID
    THAT PEOPLE COME INTO OUR LIVES FOR A REASON
    BRINGING SOMETHING WE MUST LEARN
    AND WE ARE LED
    TO THOSE WHO HELP US MOST TO GROW
    IF WE LET THEM
    AND WE HELP THEM IN RETURN
    WELL, I DON'T KNOW IF I BELIEVE THAT'S TRUE
    BUT I KNOW I'M WHO I AM TODAY
    BECAUSE I KNEW YOU...

    LIKE A COMET PULLED FROM ORBIT
    AS IT PASSES A SUN

    LIKE A STREAM THAT MEETS A BOULDER
    HALFWAY THROUGH THE WOOD
    WHO CAN SAY IF I'VE BEEN CHANGED FOR THE BETTER?
    BUT BECAUSE I KNEW YOU
    I HAVE BEEN CHANGED FOR GOOD …

    ELPHABA
    IT WELL MAY BE
    THAT WE WILL NEVER MEET AGAIN
    IN THIS LIFETIME
    SO LET ME SAY BEFORE WE PART
    SO MUCH OF ME
    IS MADE OF WHAT I LEARNED FROM YOU
    YOU'LL BE WITH ME
    LIKE A HANDPRINT ON MY HEART
    AND NOW WHATEVER WAY OUR STORIES END
    I KNOW YOU HAVE RE-WRITTEN MINE
    BY BEING MY FRIEND...


    LIKE A SHIP BLOWN FROM ITS MOORING
    BY A WIND OFF THE SEA
    LIKE A SEED DROPPED BY A SKYBIRD
    IN A DISTANT WOOD
    WHO CAN SAY IF I'VE BEEN CHANGED FOR THE BETTER?
    BUT BECAUSE I KNEW YOU...

    GLINDA
    BECAUSE I KNEW YOU...

    BOTH
    BECAUSE I KNEW YOU
    I HAVE BEEN CHANGED FOR GOOD...

    ELPHABA
    AND JUST TO CLEAR THE AIR
    I ASK FORGIVENESS
    FOR THE THINGS I'VE DONE YOU BLAME ME FOR

    GLINDA
    BUT THEN, I GUESS WE KNOW
    THERE'S BLAME TO SHARE

    BOTH
    AND NONE OF IT SEEMS TO MATTER ANYMORE

    ___

    [They sing simultaneously]

    GLINDA

    LIKE A COMET PULLED FROM
    ORBIT/AS IT PASSES A SUN/
    LIKE A STREAM THAT MEETS A
    BOULDER/ HALF-WAY
    THROUGH THE WOOD

    ELPHABA

    LIKE A SHIP BLOWN OFF ITS
    MOORING/BY A WIND OFF THE
    SEA/ LIKE A SEED DROPPED BY A
    BIRD IN
    THE WOOD

    ___

    BOTH
    WHO CAN SAY IF I'VE BEEN CHANGED FOR THE BETTER?
    I DO BELIEVE I HAVE BEEN CHANGED FOR THE BETTER

    GLINDA
    AND BECAUSE I KNEW YOU...

    ELPHABA
    BECAUSE I KNEW YOU...

    BOTH
    BECAUSE I KNEW YOU...
    I HAVE BEEN CHANGED FOR GOOD.

    We had quite a few people in both my and my DH's family pass away about a year ago. This song always felt so appropriate for my feelings and made me feel better. Listen to it if you can. It's beautiful.

    I love this song. It gets me every time, and hits me particularly hard right now.

    You're right, it so fits Bob's impact on his world, and is especially meaningful since the entire crew just saw Wicked.

    Thanks.
