    Someone told me long ago
    There’s a calm before the storm
    I know it’s been coming for some time

    When it’s over so they say
    It’ll rain on a sunny day
    I know shinning down like water

    I want to know
    Have you ever seen the rain
    I want to know
    Have you ever seen the rain
    Coming down on a sunny day

    Yesterday and days before
    Sun is cold and rain is hard
    I know, been that way for all my time

    ‘Til forever, on it goes
    Through the circle of fast and slow
    I know it can’t stop, I wonder

    I want to know
    Have you ever seen the rain
    I want to know
    Have you ever seen the rain
    Coming down on a sunny day

    I want to know
    Have you ever seen the rain
    I want to know
    Have you ever seen the rain
    Coming down on a sunny day

    From your cousin, Gabe McHugh

    To the most inspiring man in my life my Uncle Blair. Today is a very lonely day for me. I’m missing my mom and you. I feel lost and cannot seem to find words for how I feel. I know you would tell me just to let my feelings show, but I find myself searching for answers and not finding the answers. All I can think was to find you and pray to your spirit to bring me answers. I miss you and my mother Sandra Lee so much that at times i find it difficult to live. Love you and miss you dearly. I miss your crazy jokes, I miss your guidance.
    Your loving neice Lisa Pride.
