We would like to repost some words about Sky left by members of the Source Family. Sky joined the Family in the ’70s and was instrumental in bringing their music to the wider world. Some memories below:
Sky Sunlight Saxon/Arelich was one of those rare beings who never had a bad word to say about anyone or anything, I kid you not! He was constant in this personality all the 30 some years I knew him. He was such a sweetie and so kind and giving. He never gave up on the possibilities that things could always be better. I am not saying he was perfect and did not have his stuff… We all do. But this one was his signature vibration.
He was the one who basically started our movement to re-unite the family after so many years… He got the music together and produced the famous Box set of Yahowha 13 music and Spirit of 76. It is now a collectors item. This brought us out of the closet to say.
He was married 4 or 5 times, and has about 14 children. His last recording to be released was The Seeds: Back to the Garden. How appropriate?
The New York Times called me today for write up on him also re his passing. For many garage rock bands he was a true visionary and helped bring about the punk wave of a few years later.
He was always champion for the dogs, which he said was God backwards. The Source Family has gathered in cyperspace on our private site and we are doing our family ritual of chanting for him 3 1/2 days. This is our belief that it takes this long to review your river of life. We all have taken one to two hour slots so that we are covered 24×3 1/2.

Sky Saxon was my Brother. In YaHoWha . . . our Spiritual Father—who named him Arelich Aquarian.
Sky was a dear and gentle soul and the real thing. He did not speak ill of anyone—always had something positive to say of everyone—was always respectful of all and knew exactly who he was.
He will be remembered fondly by many and leaves a big hole in alternative rock and role. The dogs of the earth have lost a great champion.
On a light note, we—the Source Family—were living in Hawaii in 1975 and I had lined up a gig working in the muddy tropical rain forest. I asked for 10 of our brothers to help and Arelich (Sky) showed up in satins and patent leather shoes! We shared a laugh about it for years.
Many who would be saddened by his final passage might be comforted to know that death is not the end. It is the beginning. Life and death are but the bookends of our lives. Arelich will have a smooth and easy passage as his soul reviews his life’s river for the next 3 1/2 days. The Source Family is arranging for 24/7 live chanting of the Sacred Name of God during his Rite of Passage.
Everything that happens—every circumstance and event—is for your own Soul’s Growth.
