Song and painting for Milly Boele R.I.P.


On the 10th of March 2010 the parents of the 12 year old girl Milly Boele reported her missing to the police. The police issued an Amber Alert. On the 16th of March 2010 the police arrested a 26 year old man who lived just 2 houses next to the home of Milly Boele . The police found the body of Milly Boele buried in his garden only literally just a stone’s-throw away from Milly’s own garden. The man confessed he raped and strangled Milly Boele. He was a policeman called Sander V. Everybody was shocked. Not in the least the police. Many people showed their sympathy with the parents and family of Milly Boele. On the 12th of June 2010 a group of bikers organized a ride-out in honour and remembrance of Milly. They gathered and drove on their bikes to the house where Milly lived. Artist LaReinaWilleke and artist/singersongwriter Ron Lindeman were asked to make a painting in honour and remembrance of Milly. The painting was presented to the parents of Milly at the end of the ride-out. Ron wrote a song especially for this occasion and called it “Song for Milly Boele”. He sang it there for Milly’s parents. It was an emotional day for everybody present. Song for Milly Here we are Heads bowed down So in grief Here we are Heads up high Eyes aimed at the sky Stars that shine Are beacons in time That’s what you do Lead us the way Lighten up the night Guide us to the morning light I close my eyes And see you now Smiling so tenderly It feels amazingly Reassuringly Hello star You are in my soul Here in my heart Remain there tenderly Never leave my memory That’s what you are A star so graciously Shining bright on me We gather here To embrace you lovingly And let you know You will always be A shining star That’s what you are Bright little star That’s what you are Shine down on me lovingly We will remember you We will remember you We will remember you Written by Ron Lindeman on the 11th of June 2010 in honour and remembrance Milly Boele.
