Memorial for Arthur Bugelli, Oakwood Manor, Sarasota, FL., April 4, 2024 at 10:00am EDT

Arthur Bugelli



We gather today to remember our friend and neighbor, Art Bugelli, who passed away last month. We give thanks for hm and for the many good memories of Art's time with us. 

In this Remembrance Service, we comfort one another with stories and precious memories of Art.

Listen now to this beautiful song: In the Garden  

Psalm 23:  God is my shepherd, I shall not want.

All: God is my shepherd, I shall not want.

O my Beloved, You are my shepherd,

I shall not want;

You bring me to green pastures for rest

And lead me beside still waters

Renewing my spirit;

You restore my soul.

You lead me in the path of goodness

To follow Love’s way.

All: God is my shepherd, I shall not want.

Even though I walk through the 

Valley of the shadow and of death, 

I am not afraid;

For You are ever with me;

Your rod and your staff

They guide me,

They give me strength and comfort.

You prepare a table before me

In the presence of all my fears;

You bless me with oil, my cup overflows.

Surely goodness and mercy will follow me

All the days of my life;

And I shall dwell in the heart of the Beloved forever.


Translation by Nan Merrill, Praying the Psalms

New Testament: Gospel: John 14:1-3

Don't let your hearts be troubled. You have faith in God;

In God's house there are many dwelling places;

Otherwise, how could I have told you that I was going to prepare a place for you? I am indeed going to prepare a place for you

And then I will come back to take you, that where I am, there you may be as well.




Loving God, we remember Art and we pray that he may rest in eternal light and everlasting peace. We will  carry him in our hearts forever as we light this candle in his memory. Amen. 


Family, friends, community

We invite friends and neighbors to share a thoughtprayer, poem, song or brief story in remembrance of Art.



Our hearts are sad even as we are also grateful for the years that Art graced our lives. 

He enriched the human fabric of our days. 

May his spirit know a peace unburdened by earthly pain and trial. 

May he be at rest, embraced in unending love, forever and ever, Amen.

Closing Song: When the Saints Go Marching In
