Listen now (7 mins) | Friends and neighbors I have nothing more to say except for that Jimmy Buffett sincerely meant the world to me and my family and it’s going to take more than one sermon to grieve him properly. I apologize and I love you so much. I’ll be back later with a full sermon once I’ve gathered myself
If these walls could talk
I don't know what they'd say
They've seen some accidental
But it's no Surprise
Dances Til Dawn
Heroes long gone
Let that guitar play
Love you Cho
When I finally worked up the courage to play Incommunicado, my favorite Buffett song, I just broken down legitimately weeping. Not crying, weeping. No shame, ever.
No need to apologize... The one that got to me was John Prine. I cried like a baby and I was 68 at the time. For over 40 years he supplied the soundtrack to my life. As for Brother Jimmy , after "A1A" he became too commercial for me, but I will play that today and let the tears fall ! I suggest you find your favorite today, sing along with it, and sing a few to your baby son while your at it.
Take your time to grieve. Thank you for sharing your vulnerability. The flock loves you.
Pastor Petey, Parrothead. Perfect. 😢
Love you buddy! 💔💜
“We’ll barrel roll into the sun just for starters” ~ Brother JB. Perhaps we should use the Book of Buffett as our guide today. Hang in there Pastor Petey, Jimmy’s gone - we’re all miserable. 😢
Don't you dare apologize, I'm crying with you. Been a parrot head for decades. His music just speaks to you. Had a friend years ago won a radio contest and won an evening on his boat with an intimate concert. He said Jimmy was as nice as he appeared and they enjoyed some of the devils lettuce. A good time was had by all. Hugs Pastor
Corey, in no way do you have to apologize. Buffet hits differently because music hits different. Bowie was mine.
Take your time and come to us when you’re ready. ❤️
The only thing that gives us clear vision is time. Ain’t a damn thing wrong with not knowing why something hurts so god damn much, but if it hurts that means your love is deep as the ocean. There is no end to the that love, and now you get to bestow it on your own child and hope that you get to make those same memories for a new generation. You take all the time you need. Ain’t no shame in loving so much it hurts.
The world weeps with you, Jimmy was part of us all. He made us all stronger by making us all part of his Margaritaville paradise on earth. Don’t apologize for feeling with us, it just means you’re human. And if someone has the audacity to fret about your empathy, that’s a them problem that will understand grief in time.
Take it easy on yourself Pastor! I vividly remember being 5 or 6 years old and my daddy playing Jimmy cassettes in the rental car on our vacations. Jimmy was always "vacation music". Mr brother and I would crack up at the lyrics. So much silliness and so much happiness brother Jimmy did spread.
But as he so rightly put it - "come Monday, it'll be alright".
So sorry, Pastor Petey! When you’re able, please express my deepest sympathy and condolences to Brother Corey as well. 💔
It’s a very sad time.💔
