A beautiful tribute to David from us, his fans, this video truly speaks for itself. If he has any doubt that we’ll be here when he returns from his mission, he can watch this video and those doubts will quell away. Fans are represented from all over the world.  I watched it through tears of happiness.

A special thank you to @starrynites01, @pastelpastel and @zerogravity1 for putting this together and to all the fans who participated.

    Have you guys listened to the UStream of the Forevermore album? I really love Rainbow. I haven’t heard it all yet, but I really like what I’ve heard so far.

    Admins, I’m going to post the link to listen. It’s not CD quality because it’s a UStream, but if you still don’t want it here, please delete this comment.

    Thank you Bebe!

    What an awesome tribute for our David. We love our guy :)

    It has been an overwhelming day with the last emotional roller coaster episode of Nandito Ako. I’ve added the 4 parts of the finale to the right sidebar for quick access until the subtitled one comes out.

    Forevermore is out! I can’t wait for my copy!

  4. Nice tribute. In tears most of a.m. between Finale, listening to the UStream of Forevermore, reading the album inserts, etc etc.

    I’m kind of glad they gave us a Vangie in the mix!!

    What a beautiful fanbase for a Wonderful Young Man that has stolen our hearts. So happy we have such great memories and a support system in place.

    Oh and availablle therapy from Abrra!!

    Bebe,
    The video is beautiful. ♥ I hope he gets to see it.

    Bebe #2
    I am hearing only the song Forevermore, not the album on the UStream.

    Abrra

  8. MT said

    Abrra,
    I think Forevermore plays twice, then the others start, and then they repeat. Rainbow is really pretty. I like the beat too.

    Oh, and once you start it don’t leave the page, cuz you have to start over again. You can’t fast fowrard or rewind. At least I couldn’t.

  9. archiesfan4life said

    What an emotional day! I am so glad we have one another! Betsy – I agree – that video is the real United Nations.

    Just had to come by and give everybody a huge ((((hug)))) waaaaaaaaaaaaa

  11. dakgal said

    Oh my, what a day—I didn’t know one body could hold so many tears. What an ending to Nandito Ako. I had to watch it in two parts/ with an hour in between so I didn’t get dehydrated. Maybe that’s what I needed a “ good cry “. and I certainly was provided with one!

    Then the beautiful video from the fans!! It was great seeing everyone who made a sign, had to back up and pause a few times cause I caught a familiar name-even Jamba Jim? got in on it!! The music in the video, of course, provoked more tears—I feel like a wrung out dish rag.

    Thanks to everyone for your kind words when I cried on your shoulders yesterday ( sorry bout that )—when my son comes home to see me in Apr. we will be looking into Skype—hurray—I’ll make sure I understand it.

    Between all the tears and the sucking in of my breath every time a new picture of David pops up, it’s a wonder I don’t have a permanent case of the hiccups.—–Now its off to listen to the songs—–

    —-do I dare?

    what a day….♥
    MT thanks for clearing that up about sticking with it.
    I thought all I was getting is Forevermore too, like you Abrra.
    back later off to listen again…

    Beautiful beautiful video! What a great idea! I know David will get the message! Well done!

    Outtakes and Bloopers!!

  17. MT said

    Abrra, Sky, Glad I could help! :)

    Soooo Which ones do you guys like best? I think, so far, Forevermore and Rainbow are my favs. But they’re all beautiful.

    Bebe, thanks for the Bloopers video. And what IS he doing at :12 with his hands in the air? hahahaha Not gonna say how many times I rewound that two seconds. Too cute!

    And I was watching the Vangie video again. haha Him laughing about the RICE burger with food in his mouth is all kinds of adorable. Wore out the reeplay button on that one too.

    These will be real treasures in the upcoming weeks when I need a smile.

    Thanks David, for leaving me with somes smiles to hold on to.

  18. Bebereader said

    Oh MT…Been listening on and off all day. Besides “Forevermore”, “Nandito Ako” and “Wherever You Are” I like “Maybe”, “Tell Me”, “You Are My Song”, “Hold On” and “Reaching Out.” That’s almost every song. No surprise.

    Am I crazy? After the sadness of the finale, listening to these songs makes me imagine that David is serenading us. His voice is so soothing; it’s just the medicine we need. (I used to say that the only cure for ODD is David’s voice.) Hearing his voice on these new songs is actually mood-elevating.

  19. emmegirl14 said

    Just finished listening to ustream, think Rainbow is my favorite, and really like You Are My Song, Hold On, Reaching Out..oh heavens, what a beautiful album.

    Will settle in later with wine, popcorn and tissue, as I watch the fan video and catch up on NA episodes.

    (Could admins bring the David Archuleta Music Scholarship info from previous thread over. I know I almost missed it. Thanks.)

    What a beautiful picture at the top of this thread!

  20. Bebe, I can identify. David’s voice is healing. Knowing he is singing to the fans makes it even more special in that context. I remember an interviewer asking him if he was thinking of someone special or one of the actresses, David said ” To be honest, I was thinking of my fans” So sweet!!

    …and now he’s recording again tonight. what a guy!! Love him.

    Nice that we have each other.

    Ay ay ay ay ay I’m reduced to tears again.
    Here’s one of the best scenes from today’s episode of NA, when Anya realizes that Josh is the little boy from the fire…
    With subtitles so you can read what Anya says.

  24. Blueberry Ice said

    Oh Bebe! #23 … so touching that scene. I may just be easily impressed but for the short time that this series was conceived, put together and filmed, it was incredibly well done … can’t said enough about David’s performance as he made it look so natural & convincing! I was gonna wait for the CD but couldn’t resist listening to Forevermore on UStream. His voice is so breathtaking isn’t it? Gosh, he puts me in that dreamy sequence mood. Somehow the timing of Forevermore’s release is so fitting … his voice cradling our hearts as we feel the emotions of his impending departure.

    MT; Hard to choose a favorite as his voice soars so sweetly from song to song. Gotta agree w/ Emme … just a beautiful album!

    Dakgal; Oh, you had me crying too but Skype is a really good thing as long as the internet connection is good & not hard to do at all. You can see each other as if he’s right in the room with you. We had a nephew who was in Asia & Skyped almost everyday so it seemed like he wasn’t really gone.

    Heidijoy; Don’t know of any other celebrity that goes out of their way to show their appreciation & consideration for fans like David … he is truly special!

  25. Angelica said

    Nandito Ako was such an emotional experience, especially today. I screamed out loud when he was given the watch and told Anya dropped it! Just like the glass slipper left behind by Cinderella that Prince Charming finds and knows the girl who left it is his true love. sigh…just like a fairy tale it was. After I screamed I bawled, for Margaret and Holly, and Margaret and Teresa and I didn’t even understand what was being said. I heard with my heart. And the scene with him and Anya at Holly’s bedside…oh gosh! The expression on his face while he was bent over closely listening to her final words to him, to love Anya forever. Just beautiful and beautifully acted. I’d like to see any actor do better than he did at that moment in that scene. No way. It was perfection.

    In the video above too with subtitles, love the way he says, “NO ANYA.” You tell her Josh! gaaaah! Have so loved this mini-series and watching his acting exceed all expectations. Wow. Ahhmazing!

    Then that fan video was so full of love for David that I got all teary again. So much love from folks from so many countries! One love, one world, one David.

    I don’t think I can handle Forevermore tonight. Have to pace myself.

  26. betsy said

    Ok, it’s official: Ana Feleo is a fangirl.
    Her tweets are so funny, so telling. One minute she’s saying that she’s had a long day, tired and leaving for home. Twenty minutes later she’s home and online watching a video, lol.
    Or in a meeting listening to TOSOD and tweeting the lyrics.
    I LOVE THIS. Welcome to the family. :)

  27. PattiNC said

    Yay…finally. Didn’t think I’d ever figure out the wordpress thing!,
    Finally caught up with NA..watched last 3 episodes last night…WOAH emotional!! On top of that 2 weeks ago lost a dear uncle to aggressive brain cancer (died 3 weeks after being diagnosed), so the storyline was tough for me.
    I have got to say that Jasmine and Eula are really good actresses!! Amazing at emotion! David really did a fantastic job as well..hope someone sees how he did here in the US.

  28. bluebar said

    .To David, Ana Feleo and the cast of Nandito Ako, I’m wondering if it now all seems like a dream.

    When it’s all began,
    We knew there’d be a price…

    Once upon a dream,
    I was lost in love’s embrace.
    There i found a perfect place,
    Once upon a dream.

    Once there was a time,
    Like no other time before,
    Hope was still an open door,
    Once upon a dream.

    And i was unafraid,
    The dream was so exciting!
    But now i see it fade…
    And i am here alone!

    Once upon a dream,
    You were heaven-sent to me,
    Was it never meant to be?
    Was it just a dream?

    Could we begin again!…
    Once upon a dream.

    For those who are still having a problem with WordPress Login, try clicking forgot password so that you can make a new password. If this doesn’t do it, then make a new login name and password. You may need to add a number to your original name to keep it nearly the same. Also, you might need to use a different email address from your original Login. Making a gmail address is free and simple. When they upgraded the comments area it created more problems than it solved, it seems. ;)

    Tip: Before you post, look to the top right corner of browser for your name and avi. If it there, you are ready to post, if not your comment will be lost.

    Dear friends,
    I need to share and I know you will understand.
    I am unprepared for how sad I am feeling as the time draws close to David’s leaving. I thought I was ready. I had an almost “zen” feeling about it all after seeing him in Ventura. I knew and still know that it is the right thing for him to do. It is just I am not prepared for the “loss” part of this.
    I think it is hitting me particularly hard because I have lots of “change” happening in my life. It is all particularly tricky, because on the surface, all the change is good change. My beloved daughter has moved,,,,, to be with the man she has loved for 8 years. My husband and I are moving,,,, to live in the same community as our son’s family (four grandkids less than 5 years old). I am retiring,,,, it’s obvious why that is great. So on the surface all of this is good. But it is all still loss; loss of contact with coworkers I love and respect, loss of loving neighbors and a home and neighborhood we love, loss of routines and habits that form your life.
    I have always been a positive person who sees the cup “half full”. I look “forward” in my life. The problem with that, is you are not always looking behind you to see what’s coming to bite you in the butt. Sometimes that leaves me unprepared for how I truly feel. I think this has been one of the biggest gifts David has given me. David has helped me learn that all that I feel is just that, all that I feel. It is okay for me to feel the loss of all this. It is okay that I wake up early and go to bed late so I can further support the kleenex industry.
    So one of my means of support is also one of my losses, dear David gone for two years. I am unprepared and I am sad. And that is okay too.
    I love the song, Closing Time. My favorite line “Another new beginning is another new beginnings end.” I have, and David has, a new beginning. But it is another new beginnings end and that is a loss. and it is okay to cry.
    So glad I have all of you to share with and that you Will be here for the next two years. I will be too. Love to every single one of you. Poof

    What a wonderful experience this has been. Nandito Ako was great entertainment and kept my spirits up. And now we have Forevermore. David is so considerate.

    I am feeling happy and excited for him as he is making his preparations for this next phase in his life. I read a comment from Jasmine how cute it was how David would walk around talking to everyone during NA so I think David will do just fine out there talking to people on his mission. And of course who can resist that face and That Smile. :)

    Also Abrra, if you could tell me why my Ipad is constantly kicking me off as it is trying to load the comments. It seems to happen when there are more than four or five comments already under the article. The only way I can get around it sometimes is by leaving the site open and refreshing but sometimes even that doesn’t seem to work. Hate to complain but it makes me sad that for the last two articles I was not able to see the later comments. :(

  33. Abrra said

    Poof
    I am glad you will stay with the fan base. We will all have out times when we feel down and count on each other to uplift our spirits.

    You have so much change right now it must feel like being in a blender of emotions. Sad is part of life. Let it happen, ride it out. Something new will come along and take it away,maybe your new home will inspire you to a fresh start. We would not want a David that was prevented from going on his mission because fans objected, now would we? ( I know you want that for him, just an example) You are looking toward retirement, and to me, that is a form of growth just as his mission is to David.

    I don’t own an iPad, but if you can clear the history and cache in the browser and close it, your next session should be ok. Check out some iPad tech forums. I do that when I have a problem I can’t solve. I don’t have any special knowledge, just experience fixing my mistakes :)

    I listened to the ustream. Rainbow is my favourite song on the album. He sounds different in a wonderful way, yet he is still David. It’s a gorgeous song with an ending that goes right to my heart. I can’t wait for my copy of Forevermore to arrive. I am going to wear it out listening to Rainbow.

  36. xaris2014 said

    Hi Everyone! Hugs to all those who are feeling sad about David’s upcoming departure. I’m right there with you, even though I am truly happy for him. We have been on a short vacation, and it was a struggle to keep up with NA and the comments here, so I’m still reading through things. And wordpress just refuses to give me back my user name and little blue vest that I’ve had for years. If anyone else out there is still struggling with wordpress, just get a new email address and sign up again–it’s less infuriating.

    Anyway, major kudos to David for a superb job on NA. I can’t wait for Forevermore! I’m not even commenting on that picture by Matt Clayton. We need to seriously think about bribing that man to release photos periodically over the next two years.

    Cheers to All!

  37. stidwell56 said

    I am listening to the ustream too. So amazing! I can hardly wait for the real CD. One of mine is on it’s way from the Philippines a I write this. Hopefully it will get to my house by the time I get back from my little trip to the hospital on Thursday.

    That song from Ana Feleo was just magical. She sure feels the music, like someone else I know. It is so funny to read on twitter the ODD interaction between her and MyDear Writer and JoAnn B. They are hooked and now consider themselves Archieholics, haha!! I kind of feel bad they haven’t been along for the ride the past 4 years, but so glad they have joined us now. They have missed out on so much.

    Poof, I know the feeling. It is going to feel so different, but it will be so good for David. My two sons matured so much on their missions and came home with a greater perspective of where they wanted their lives to head. Life just seemed to easier to navigate when they got home. The sacrifices really made them know who they were as a person. David needs this right now. He had to grow up so fast and in such a crazy industry, as Eman said, he needs to find out the direction he wants to take with his music and this will be a good thing for him.

    Abrra, I love how compassionate you are with all of us here. You have a rare gift to just say the right things at the right time. I so hope one day I get to meet you in person.

    I have loved Nandito Ako!! I got up every morning to watch it and follow along the translation and twitter. Then I would rewatch the replay on TV5, then watch the last episode with english translations the next day, usually more than once. David is such an amazing actor, but then what isn’t he amazing at, right? He really is a gift from Heaven!!! My sleep pattern is going to have to adjust to not getting up so early. Woke up this morning at exactly 6:55 to get up and go to the computer room, but alas, no reason to now. I will miss it, but maybe now I can catch up on some of that lost sleep I missed the last 5 weeks.

    Well, off to watch a grandson play a baseball game. Love this place, my home for all things David. So glad you aren’t going anywhere and many, many thanks to all the admins who keep us so updated so quickly about him. Take care, all, and I will try to get to the livestream tonight if I can sneak away from real life.

  38. SandyBeaches said

    OK Poof..you do have a lot of changes on the go and my worst pet peeve if you can call it that is…changes…I think that perhaps something traumatic happened and it lingers with me. I know how you feel and even one big change is enough but dang it doesn’t happen that way sometimes. There is only one way to go with these changes this time around and as we have mentioned many times, it was not just meeting David and enjoying his music but it was also getting to know the fans. We share many of the same feelings about the significance of knowing David and what his music means to us. The friendships have been growing steadily.

    His music will be kept alive throughout the time and there are sure to be bits of news when we least expect it. We are going to have to be more creative perhaps for the months ahead, so Poof, stayed tuned…keep reaching for his music. For my own sake, I just look ahead at the next few months because the future is still in the making. Oh and when you want to make a connection, drop him a card!! It is funny how his emphasized words come to the front like…forge every mountain…or…you find it, you hold it, you feel its grace…these are the words.

    SB

  39. ram said

    SB- Thanks for the reminder “you find it, you hold it, you feel its grace…these are the words.”

    I feel like each step of this journey with David, the many ups, sometimes downs are all something I would not have wanted to miss. I have adjusted my concerns, my expectations and am at peace realizing that life is a mystery. I am going to be challenged in my own life and I know that however David chooses to share of himself, I hope to be around to enjoy his works. He can do so many things and he is still so young.

    Have a good day y’all.

    I like that. I think i’ll just take it a month at a time and see what happens. I’ll take what comes along and enjoy it along with the friendships I’ve made here. You all being here will make the time go faster. ♥

  42. Angelica said

    Poof #31

    Thank you for sharing your feelings with us. You are going through so many changes right now and change, even if good, is a stressor that takes a toll on your emotional balance. One thing you said really struck me, “I have always been a positive person who sees the cup “half full”. I look “forward” in my life. The problem with that, is you are not always looking behind you to see what’s coming to bite you in the butt. Sometimes that leaves me unprepared for how I truly feel.” I think many of us can relate to that. We try to stay positive and I know I use certain defense mechanisms to protect me, like denial. I went to a chiropractor for the first time this week and he said that physically, I am always guarding. He never could get me to completely relax and let him take over. I think in many ways, I am like that emotionally too. Always guarding my feelings. That’s why, what seems to others is easy for me to write, is not easy at all. It’s scary to put those feelings out there. So I appreciate you for doing that and I encourage others in the next 24 months after he leaves to do the same. One of my ways of “guarding” against David’s leaving has been not wanting the feelings to be shared too soon. Like Scarlet O’Hara, “I can’t think about that today. I’ll think about that tomorrow.” But tomorrow is almost here and we need to be here for each other. As SB said, “There is only one way to go with these changes this time around and as we have mentioned many times, it was not just meeting David and enjoying his music but it was also getting to know the fans.”

    So “I’ll be here” encompasses more than David, but the fans he loves as well. That’s how he would want it and the only way we will get through this, (and we have to go through, not around or under or over) is by loving and supporting each other.

  43. emifriend said

    Ok I am going to jump in here really quickly to tell you a short story. I have not read this thread yet so forgive me for this intrusion. I just told AABBRRAA this and she told me I had to post it:

    I’ll tell you a good story: I was at my cancer support group and the ladies were all upset and talking about daily fears of recurrence and tremendous anxiety getting thru treatment . explained to them that I had just decided it was all too big for me to worry about so I decided to not worry about it at all. They asked me how I did that and I explained that I was greatly helped by the David Archuleta cd..”The Other Side of Down” and I quoted the elevator song…” elevator goes up, elevator come down and ya just go with the flow till your feet are back on the ground” The leader said… ” wow… pause… long pause.. there was silence in the room and they were all wowing…. Emily you are so evolved” hahaha I told them to all go get the cd! DAVID IS SO EVOLVED!

    And then I said… “really that cd is so great I tried to get it as a gift into the chemo lab for the patients, thru the fan club, blush. laughter. of which I am a member, more laughter. …I hope they all get the cd! I know it will really help them.

  44. SandyBeaches said

    Oh!!! in #38, I made a huge mistake…you don’t forge the mountains!!!You see forge can mean…to form or make, especially by concentrated effort, but its way off!!

    I meant to say…”Climb every mountain,
    Ford every stream”…

    Well if you laughed at me then that is OK too!!

    So many wonderful nuggets of wisdom and love here to help us all through the next phase of this wonderful journey. Thank you to everyone for sharing, it really helps.

    ((Emifriend))

    Angelica…”“I can’t think about that today. I’ll think about that tomorrow.” *raises hand* Guilty!

    Poof, thank you for sharing your honest and heartfelt thoughts. “A blender of emotions” is a perfect description of how so many of us are feeling.

    I’m trying to pick out a few of David’s best scenes from the mini series to share with someone who was a fan from years ago, but moved on to other artists. She asked me about David yesterday, and I wanted to show her some of his best moments….any thoughts?

  47. bluesky said

    Sandybeaches:

    Ha! I didn’t laugh. I just thought you were making a pun and that we are meant to “forge” ahead whatever mountains may challenge us. *sigh*

    I have a good friend in Germany who lived and taught in the area where there were many refugees just after the war. She would often say in class (as an aside to me) “People do not understand that there are some things in life that we just Have To Do! there is no way around it”. She was referring to our ‘western’ sometimes way of thinking that difficult things are to be avoided. She often tells me that this attitude of “forging ahead” is what saves lives. So… no, your use of the word “forge” seemed very appropriate to me. ^_^

    (Or maybe that is just my freudian-slip showing!)

    Emifriend:

    Loved your story about being “evolved”. Guess there is no way off of this elevator. Choice: bail or ride. Think I will ride. I hear there is a family that has elevator problems from time to time. They just sing.

  48. emifriend said

    Bluesky you always make me smile :) We all have elevator issues. I think that is the point of the song. David taught me how to sing , be patient, and to wait while I get to the other side of down.. It all worked for me!

  49. Sent the Watch matching scene and the Kite flying scene to Mjsbigblog.com today and she posted the Watch matching scene. Leave a comment over there if you wish. Djafan, are you there.

    Loving all the comments today. Emotional week for sure!!

    I really thought I would be ok with David leaving because I am truly happy for him. But the closer we get to M-Day the worse I feel. Today I feel really sad. This week is going to be tough.

    I am going to imagine that there is a BIG family party for David this weekend. A time to give David a chance to spend a happy time and make some memories to bring along in his backpack. This is one of those times when thinking happy thoughts might just make a difference in my mood.

    Emifriend thanks for telling your story. No matter what we face, there is a way to cope.

    @DavidArchie “The future is a vast, empty plain leaving us with so many possibilities to fill it and ways to add to it. What will you add?”

    Do you feel his excitement?

    Jasmine’s Aussie accent was so lovely! I didn’t know she was born in Melbourne, Australia and continues to live and attend school there. I love that she deeply respects and admires David’s goodness and sweet spirit. She has those traits too. Gosh, what a beautiful young woman, inside and out. Love her. ♥

    Spent the day with family today; busy day. I kept checking in and saw that everyone’s mood was similar to mine. So glad we have each other. Thank you all for being here.

    Poof, Saying prayers that you have the strength to cope with the changes coming your way. Please remember that we will be here for you should you need a shoulder.

    I still haven’t watched the finale of NA with subtitles except for the one video I posted in comment #23. That scene was so well-acted and well-directed. Did you notice how the Nandito Ako theme music welled up at the exact moment that Anya realized that Josh was the little boy she helped save in the fire? David’s acting was superb. He is ready for Hollywood when he gets back. He hardly needs any lines; his eyes speak volumes.

    Angelica, I loved your analogy to the Cinderella fairy tale!

    and SandyBeaches, I loved your suggestion of mailing a postcard to David when you miss him. Taking action always makes one feel better!

    Emifriend, Your stories have always been so inspirational to me!

    Kaycee, Scenes from the last episode were terriffic!
    NanditoAkolover has some of the best scenes from the miniseries and she/he made them into videos with English subtitles. They are on her youtube page. The one I posted in comment #23 is only one of sixteen so you can take your pick.

    {{{Krbdavid1}}} Seems most of us are feeling this way. Feel free to stop by and verbalize your thoughts here. We understand and so we empathize.

    #55 Beautiful video from the Pinoy Archies!! I especially loved seeing Jasmine and Eula at the end. What they both said brought tears to my eyes. Please watch it if you haven’t done so already.

    Feeling emotional today for David (and of course myself) as I imagine he will be giving his “farewell address” to his ward (congregation). With my own children, after months of preparation for their missions and years of knowing it would happen, the farewell made it all seem so real. Family, friends and loved ones come to listen and show support–I imagine it will be an emotional (and beautiful) day for David and his family.

  72. SandyBeaches said

    Elvis Presley once sang in a song that the world is a stage and each must play a part. But when the stage is bare there won’t be emptiness all around, never, not on my watch or Bebe’s or Djafan’s and on and on. We have things to do …

    SB

  73. #71 Been thinking of that all day. Imagining him giving a wonderful heartfelt Farewell Message!! So happy he will be surrounded by family and friends who love him. Lots of Love being sent his way through the atmosphere by thousands who love and admire him. Can’t help but think how emotional his Decision Speech was and likewise how emotional and beautiful day this will be for David, knowing he is following this most important step in the Journey he has been destined to take.

    Wishing David all the Best and Praying for all who love him so dearly. He has given us so many gifts with more to come. Soon we will count the days until he returns and Pray for his safety and well being while he is gone and beyond.!!

    Got through watching Episode 25 of Nandito Ako in English subtitles, watched Karin & Monica’s I’ll Be Here vid & the Pinoy Archies vid & Phyllis hugging David and I don’t think I’ll ever quit crying!! So hard thinking of David being away from us for 2 years!! The only thing that is helping me get through this is know that David is so happy and at peace about his decision!

  82. bluesky said

    Love you guys!

    Tougher would be not having this fan place to go to “see” and “hug” all of you. We should really have our own “farewell” party… complete with food and music and LOTS of noise.

    Hello Family,

    I have never left – always lurking – many times crying (trying hard to explain to hubby the swollen eyes.)
    I never missed a single episode of NA, even while away in a small island (far south from Cebu.) No internet connection there but there was cable.
    The last episodes hit me hard – I was exactly in the same scenario ( hospital, brain cancer) – I couldn’t function for 2 days.

    JR was sometimes my sounding board (thanks again JR)- she let me ramble and be crazy…..
    Thank you guys for always being here for us. I am going to MISS David a lot.I am not compu-savvy so I wasn’t able to join the #DA2014 video…but I can assure you I will be here when he returns…
    Also waiting for my Forevermore cd – Cebu is always behind in so many things ( no DA shirts in Bench stores here )
    Back to lurking – (waving to Angelica and Suzy Q)
    HUGS to all,
    vlm

    Hello my darling! I have been thinking of you a lot lately and wondering how you are. So glad you were able to watch all the NA episodes. Waving and (((hugging))) back at you in Cebu. ‘

    Had an emotional service at our church this morning. Our pastor of 21 years is retiring and his final sermon and farewell celebration was today. From my seat, I could see the sheet music for the choir on the piano. The song title was “Child of God”. My heart stopped! Thankfully, it was not David’s “I Am a Child of God”, so I didn’t have to get out my tissues. However, just as I was starting to relax, our pastor thanked everyone for their support and then pulled out his guitar and sang “Stand By Me”……in English and Spanish!

    Like everyone else, the past week has been emotional for me as reality sets in about David’s departure. My head is happy for him, but my heart aches just the same. I want to begin looking forward to his return.

    I am just so thankful and appreciative for all that David is leaving for us. I can’t think of any other artist who has such a strong connection to his/her fans. He is an absolutely amazing young man!

    There have been so many things going on in the “David world” the last few days. It’s hard to comprehend that come Weds. it will all be changed for a couple of years. I’m just thankful that I have this place to come to. ♥♥

    Thank you, again, to the admins and absolutely every last one of the rest of you for being here, and planning to stick it out.

  92. emmegirl14 said

    Oh kaycee, thanks so much for that quote. He has indeed left his footprints on many a heart. I hope I’m not being too personal, (please tell me if I am), but do I remember you saying one of your children was leaving on mission this spring, or did you say you have one coming home? Or neither, lol?

  93. Suzy-Q said

    Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine myself being such a dedicated fan of anyone in the entertainment business. I loved Elvis and that’s about it. And, never could I imagine having made friends through that person. Who would have guessed that I would have David in my life and that I would have many of David’s fans as friends. Especially, a sweet, lovely lady from the Philippines to whom I have been directly communicating with for the last couple of years. It was through this site, “The Voice” that I was able to make the connection. We have shared so much about ourselves and about our love for David. I would like to thank Angelica for putting us together to share a common loss. Together we have supported with the help of David’s messages of having a more positive outlook in life.
    Now, when David is gone, I will finally get to go through all the videos and photos of him again. It will take me at least a couple of years to do that. Lol

    Hugs to everyone. ( Waves back to Mslv )

  94. kaycee said

    Emmegirl (92)…I have 2 children that returned home from missions this past year…a boy and a girl. I don’t have anyone going this spring, but my younger daughter is 19, and many of her guy friends have recently entered the MTC or are going in the next few months. She wonders if David will serve in any of their missions. Also, my son is 21, the age that LDS girls go on missions if they choose, so many of his friends that are girls are also entering the MTC at this time.

    Admin edit Abrra This looks like David got the haircut already! These are not pictures by the blogger below.

    What I Learned Today
    We have had a great weekend and today was no exception.
    This morning we were blessed to be able to attend David Archuleta’s mission farewell.
    My mom has become good friends with him over the past couple of years and we were excited to join her.

    All I can say is how impressed I was when David spoke.
    I felt the spirit so strong and I was brought to tears multiple times.
    I was so amazed with how humble he was.
    He has been blessed with so many opportunities but he has not let anything get to his head.

    After David spoke he sang “The Spirit of God.”
    I think everyone in the room was moved to tears.
    I have said this before and I’ll say it again but I have NEVER met anyone who has such a clear, beautiful voice.
    He is so gifted and he will make an incredible missionary.

    After the musical number Elder Ballard spoke.
    I felt so blessed to hear an Apostle of the Lord speak.
    He spoke about how right before the farewell he had been with all of the apostles and the Prophet.
    He told David that they all sent David their best wishes, support and prayers.
    How amazing would it feel to have that?

    All in all it was an incredible meeting and I couldn’t stop thinking about how grateful I was that we could be there.
    I felt like I learned so much and I definitely learned a lot about what I need to do to become a better person.
    It also helped me realize what was truly important in life and never to take anyone or anything for granted.

    That’s all for now!

    Album Review: David Archuleta – Forevermore
    Just days before leaving on his LDS mission, David Archuleta has released his new OPM album in the Philippines titled Forevermore. This love ballad cover album is something David Archuleta fans have been waiting for since the second he stepped off the Idol stage, and finally it’s here.

    The album includes David’s latest single “Forevermore,” as well as the songs “Nandito Ako” and “Wherever You Are” from David’s Filipino mini series Nandito Ako.

    David also lends his silky-smooth voice to love ballads like “I’ll Never Go” and “Maybe,” while other songs are more upbeat, but still just as lovey dovey, such as “Reaching Out” and “You Are My Song.”

    Other songs on the album relate more to his mission, in a way. In “Hold On,” David sings about having a reason to hold on to a love, even while that person is gone. Perfect, huh? But the most optimistic song on the OPM would have to be “Rainbow.” David literally sings about rainbows and butterflies in this cute, upbeat song. You might think it’d be a cheesy song, but I assure you, the way David sings the lyrics, Life’s full of challenges, Not all the time we get what we want, But don’t despair my dear, You’ll take each trial and you’ll make it through the storm cause you’re strong, My faith in you is clear… he’ll have you believing it.

    This new album is everything we love about David Archuleta, and more. So while he’s gone on his 2-year mission, remember to hold on, because there’s a rainbow always after the rain.

    #108 Djafan

    I love the picture with his aunts and cousin. It seems clear to me where DA gets at least some of his dry sense of humor.
    (Their matching white shirts and black ties/suites/skirts) FYI: Black is not a required color for missionaries. None of my sons wore black on their missions. (Their suits were medium to dark colored, but not black.) In fact, there are several countries where black suits are prohibited for missionaries because of a negative association that color may have in relation to the countries culture. (Guess DA is NOT going to one of those countries. ^_^) Anyway… the whole “Men in Black” look that the family is sporting here could be seen as a gentle “tongue-in-cheek” way of showing him support (See C’s dark glasses!)

    Like I said: that dry wit.

    bluesky’s own gripe: At every store that I took my sons to to get their suites they had free tailoring. So… why Dear DA would they not fix the length of your sleeves?

  116. emmegirl14 said

    bluesky, dry wit, always been my favorite type of humor, and he wears it well, haha.

    Thanks kaycee. You have certainly experienced the emotional roller coaster he and his family are on. Considering the ups and downs of my own emotions, I can’t imagine what it is like for the families. I would guess the joy and pride help balance the sadness from how much they are missed.

  117. gladys1961 said

    I have closed my throat and tears are about to leave, now that David’s departure is imminent, it hurts all over. Tomorrow I start my classes in law school, I hope that it fills my time.
    I feel great sorrow, uneasiness.

  119. SandyBeaches said

    Bluesky…if that is a suit jacket that David has worn before then the reasoning used to be that he needed a longer sleeve so it wouldn’t appear too short when he raised his arms up with the microphone or simply raised his arms while singing. We talked about that when we first noticed them long but soon found out. You don’t wear out suits very fast so that may be one he has performed in. My guess is that a lot of young men do not wear suits very much before their time away and most buy new. David has performed often in everything from sport’s jackets to tuxedos.

    ‘At every store that I took my sons to to get their suites they had free tailoring. So… why Dear DA would they not fix the length of your sleeves?’

    I had the exact same thought come to me. And I am pretty sure that this would be his ‘missionary suit’. And I’m pretty sure he would have acquired it at Mr. Mac’s, and we all know Mac Christiansen’s love for David (the other ‘Mac’ with MoTab). Oh well, maybe David likes them long. Who knows. :)

    It’s really been kind of weird today not to be ‘involved’ in NA. I need to figure out, as they are calling it on FOD, my TYP (two year plan). Right now, I’ve got 30 baby shower invites to make so I’ve got the first few days taken care of. I’ll face the other 700+ as they come. :? Part of this summer will be spent in Canada. I can’t wait for a new explore.

    Dayzee, it’s almost time to start your ‘chain-down’. Remember, just one link per day!! haha

    I’m hopeful that come Weds., I’ll face the day with courage and not think about what is happening, probably in Provo, (10 miles from my house). I’ve got lots of ‘stuff’ on the calendar so here’s hoping the mind stays as busy as the body will be.

    Hello!! (*_*) Silly me. Well… I like knowing that, thank you! And wouldn’t it be just like DA to not want to spend $$ on new stuff he may not really need.

    Don’t suppose there is a way to replicate a few of him, just for good measure? While he may be willing to do with only what he needs, a few of us are feeling like only one of him might be less than sufficient right about now.

    Am I spoiled? Yes. Totally, completely and happily spoiled. *sigh*

    Gladys, I’m sending you lots of {{{hugs}}} and strength. You will make this next two years fly by with your positive attitude and crazy humor that we see in chat all the time. It’s just kind of hard right now. But, remember what David has told us…’things are gonna get better’. Also, I want to wish you a lot of good luck as you start your law classes. You are one ambicioso lady!! ♥♥♥

    Awwww Gladys,

    I’m feeling it too. {{{hugs}}}

    And good luck with your Law classes. ♥ I know you’ll do great.

    Think he will tweet or vlog tomorrow?

  129. marlie7 said

    Whew! Breathe in, breathe out. That’s what Ihave to do when i think about David leaving.

    On another note: His hair looks pretty good! A little bit of Bench Fix and he’d have a great spike! LOL

  130. Bebereader said

    SandyBeaches #119 Can you please send a better link to the video you posted? The current one isn’t working. Thank you.

    Gladys, Best of luck to you as you start law school! So excited for you!

    Abs, cool twitvid turned video! I love the way David corrected Kurt Bestor and said that he plans on coming back to music in two years when he returns from his mission.

    This week is difficult to get through. I’m taking one day at a time and drowning in his voice.

    Tawna, my scissors are ready and I understand: 1 day = 1 snip. Would you like me to send you an update every couple of months so that you can check on the shortening of the chain?

    This part has been more difficult than I expected. Gotta get through this. Who is going to give me tasks now? David always gave us tasks that would benefit ourselves and others. Another clue that he cares about us.

  132. Dayzee said

    OH, and good to see David hanging out with Kurt Bestor. Good things happen!

  133. gladys1961 said

    girls, I’ve had a brilliant idea. I’m going to translate into Spanish the book of david “Chords of Strength”. There are 11 chapters, plus the introduction and comments from the cover and back cover. Then would be like 12 chapters, I can do a chapter a month. (you know that my English is not very good).
    The first year of mission david, I’d be pretty busy, doing something that gives me pleasure. And all Latino fans can enjoy reading.
    At some point I’ll have any other ideas for the second year of mission. I’m going day by day and step by step.

    Just when I thought things were going pretty good..POW right in the kisser!!

    This was one of the videos you could go to from the one abs posted.

  135. djafan said

    Gladys, that is a great idea!!!!! COS in spanish would be such a gift!

    Dayzee, scissors!

    MyDearWriter started a trending topic. We Love David Archuleta and Be Safe David Archuleta. Everyone follow her example and both topics have been trending worldwide and many cities all over the world of and on for a couple of hours now :)

    I found it interesting and happy to see that Kurt Bestor was with David for his recording, don’t know why lol.

  136. I’m in Twitter Jail from trending Be Safe David Archuleta/We Love You David Archuleta. Trending SLC, USA, Canada and Worldwide. Phillipines and Asian countries will follow soon I’m sure.

    Hope all is well.

  137. Gladys!! Just read up thread! What a wonderful Project! I’m speechless.

  138. kaycee said

    Wow, what a day! That “blender of emotions” (thanks Poof!) is going full throttle!

    LOVED the hair vlog! He is sooo good to us…treats us like family.

    The Kurt Bestor twitvid…I was so touched that David was up past midnight on Saturday recording for all of us when he had to give his farewell address to his congregation the next morning. And, he was so careful to correct Kurt to make sure that we knew he was coming back to music after his mission. Again…sooo good to us.

    {{{Gladys}}} What a great fan you are!

    Marlie, good advice!…”Whew! Breathe in, breathe out. That’s what I have to do when I think about David leaving. ”

    I came across this quote today…“ A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart and can sing it back to you when you have forgotten the words.” Thanks for helping me remember, David.

  143. Some are asking what I meant by my post at #140

    It means that digital copy of the album is available for purchase & download.

    For those who have not pre-ordered or cannot pre-order earlier and/or are interested to listen to a clear copy of the album or cannot wait for their physical album to come (LOL), this is their chance.

    Archuleta Philippines will resume the Gifting Campaign, this time for the album, until funds last.

    oh Kaycee, I so love that quote, and what you said.

    Passion: thy name is David Archuleta.

    (I know I am going to love the sound I finally hear that goes with that moment.)

  155. tawna21 said

    Emmegirl 148. My guess would be a CTR ring… looks like it belongs there. I’m with David and that tweet.
    Wow, it’s hitting me.also. I’ve got butterflies in my tummy. You’d think he was my own child leaving.♥♥

    Yes, Dayzee, updates would be appreciated. Anything that visually shows that the time is passing will be great.

    Good things come when David meets with Kurt Bestor. :)

  156. sweetonda said

    Dja, “My heart is going to explode with so much pride and love for David ♥” I am so with you on this one!

    He is fitting every single spare moment to make sure we get his very best effort. How could be not love this young man as we do.

    This album is going to be epic!!!

    Bluesky, I just love all your words. “(Any ideas on how to get that “two year” thing speeded up while you are at it?) Had to laugh at this one, but oh wouldn’t that be great if could twitch our nose and have it be 2014 the day after tomorrow! LOL

  157. MT said

    Strange to see him sitting down to sing. It has to be more difficult that way, but he’s probably so tired. He really has worked sooo hard to give us as much as he can before he leaves.

    His tweet. I guess we’re not the only ones it is “getting real” for. It seems to be hitting him, too.
    My heart goes out to him. Even thought this is something he really wants, it will still take him some time to adjust to such a different life style.

    It will be such a dramatic change for him, even more so because of all that he’s done in the last several months.
