That which belongs to fellowship and love. 
That which belongs to the circle, remains with us. 
The wheel turns. As life is a day, so our sister has passed into night. 
Nothing is final, and we who remain behind know 
that one day, we will once again share the bread and wine with our sister. 
O' blessed spirit, we bid you farewell, for you await a new destiny

Untie the silver cord and lay it into the chalice. Blow out the candles

and send him off to Timbuktu

Hear my cry spirit from the other side.
