Thread Name: where is David O Docherty?
Subject: RE: where is David O Docherty?
Uncle David;
Where did you go? Too soon you left this mortal life, doing one of the things you loved most and in a place you loved to be. You were a very gentle man, always looking at the best qualities in us. We are so fortunate to have been able to see you and Gail, both at your home and ours, several times in the last few years. We are very lucky to have several of your paintings hanging in our home which will be a constant reminder of you. One of those, a portrait of myself, done in Dublin, circa 1960 is admired by many. Our children, Fiona, Michael and Alexandra also have fond memories of you too. Each of them share in your passion for both painting and music. It's great that he was able to hear Michael's first crack at cutting a CD and see Fiona's paintings too.
We will miss you dearly but know that your legacy will live on in Annabel and Michael; their children Tommy, Alice and George.

May you rest in peace.

Claire and John
