Clarence Clemons ~ Sunshine In Your Smile

There are days in our lives when the sun doesn't shine so bright...
The tears, like rain, pour down
making it hard to see or feel the rays of warmth that the sunshine brings...

"It is with overwhelming sadness that we inform our friends and fans that at 7:00 tonight, Saturday, June 18, our beloved friend and bandmate, Clarence Clemons passed away. The cause was complications from his stroke of last Sunday, June 12th.

Bruce Springsteen said of Clarence: Clarence lived a wonderful life. He carried within him a love of people that made them love him. He created a wondrous and extended family. He loved the saxophone, loved our fans and gave everything he had every night he stepped on stage. His loss is immeasurable and we are honored and thankful to have known him and had the opportunity to stand beside him for nearly forty years. He was my great friend, my partner, and with Clarence at my side, my band and I were able to tell a story far deeper than those simply contained in our music. His life, his memory, and his love will live on in that story and in our band."


During these times in life when... well I'll let Clarence say it: "things happen that you don't understand that make you sad, make you very unhappy and uneasy. I want you to know that the universe loves you... I love you... Be happy!"

I sent this "Get Well" video to Clarence just a few hours before he left us. :(

"May your positive energy live on in our hearts forever." ♥♥
