I am writing this on behalf of John, David's older brother
who is very ill and has been in ICU in City Hopsital for
last 7 weeks. I haven't told him yet of David's passing it
will be very difficult as David was his 'wee brother'. David
was such a lovley gentle man and typical of him in his last
weeks he was calling me most nights for an update on John's
condition worrying more about John than himself. He was so
talented musically as were all the Shannon family he was funny,
entertaining and a great musuican. We had the pleasure of
Linda and Daves company at John's 70th Birthday lunch in Bowness
in The Lake District. It was a lovely happy day and John and
Dave sat in the garden and talked for hours. This is the memory
that i will cherish. My thoughts are with Linda and Dave. Iris
