Subject: Obit: Please sing your hearts out tonight
From: GUEST,Frug
Date: 30 Jul 11 - 05:09 PM

Mudcatters, some time tonight my dear wife of 25 years will pass away. My beloved Sarah had a massive brain haemmorrhage this morning and will not survive. Her wish for organ donation means that for us there will be a long and difficult vigil because of the protocols and procedures that will be needed to prolong her physical life although her brain function is minimal. My two sons Sam and Dom and myself will sing to her in her passing. She is a remarkable woman who has tolerated 3 male musicians with associated habits and quirks................she was a wonderful singer and loves music which is why I post to a music thread. Please join us in singing her away.....please.

Frank

My heart breaks to read this, and there are no words that can make it any easier. Your generosity to participate in organ donation may make it seem all the harder now, but you'll be grateful later that you and she did it.

Take care, all of you.

Frank, I don't know what pulled me to this thread tonight. But the same thing called me to sing Amazing Grace for all of you. The tune, softly sung and hummed, has always brought me such comfort both in death and in birth.

You are none of you alone. Thank you for inviting us to share your vigil.

I truly know the tragedy and sadness you're going through. A stroke/brain hemorrhage took my wife five years ago as she was battling inoperable lung cancer.

I'm not very good with words at times like these and I can't imagine the pain that you are going through at this time.

I'll sing the song that, though not my words, I feel (from what you said in your original post) sums up a wonderful partnership.

WE BOTH HAD A VERY GOOD TIME
(Derek Brimstone)

How mamy miles have we wandered side by side
laughing and talking, sometimes we even cried
well the long long road has ended to baby dry your eyes
come here let me kiss you, you know I'm going to miss you
and we both had a very good time

how many bar rooms, how many cities and towns
how many faces - how many sights and sounds
and how many places did you hear me sing my songs
Well laughing or grieving we broke about even
and we both had a very good time

well remember all the good times, forget all about the bad
you know I really really really loved you - i gave you all I had
didn't I always tell you some day this time would come
well I'm sorry my dear, but now that it's here
we both had a very good time

This ain't no time for sadness, It ain't no time for tears,
For happiness just fades away, then it disappears,
You've got many more years than I have - that's why I set you free
So be glad that you met me and baby don't forget me
And we both had a very good time.

So then how many miles, have we wandered side by side,
Laughing and talking, sometimes we even cried.
But the long long road has ended, so baby dry your eyes.
Come here let me kiss you, you know I'm gonna miss you,
And we both had a very good time - I mean
We both had a very good time.

With love

Bugsy
