I’ll be watching you
In the early hours of Friday morning my dear friend Audrey gracefully conceded her three year fight against cancer.
The Parting Glass was completed in fits and starts on Friday afternoon in the company of Audrey’s daughter, my own and their friends. I am continually bowled over by how wonderful this bunch of teenagers are.
I know Audrey was deeply proud of her two girls and I wish she could see how they and their Dad are grieving with such grace, consideration and love for each other and everyone else.
Well done Auds, they are your legacy.
‘I’ll be watching you’ was written by Roseanne cash after her dad, Johnny Cash passed away. It’s a beautiful song about loss and love.
