Subject: Sarah Morgan (illness)
From: George Papavgeris
Date: 21 Aug 13 - 12:36 PM

I have just seen the following from Moira Craig via Judith Snelling:
=========
Sarah was in hospital last week and has had some scans which unfortunately have shown that she has cancer lesions on her liver. These are likely to be metastesis and the hospital want to do more tests to try to find where the primary cancer is. Not good news I'm afraid but she made it up to Whitby for a few days and went home Monday evening. She was delighted to make it.

She wants people to know so they can be straight with her. No shilly shallying (you know what she's like) so please pass the message on to anyone you meet that she knows.
=========

Sad to hear this. I never had the pleasure of meeting Sarah but I have corresponded with her about Cicely Fox Smith. Sarah was the one that adapted "Homeward" (aka "Home Boys Home") for singing. It's probably the most recorded C. Fox Smith poem.

I wish her well.

Like you, Mick, we've known Sarah for a long time. Sarah, I still remember when we first met, sitting on a bench in the sun at Bracknell festival. Anne and I had not long been together so it must have been at least 35 years ago. Doesn't time fly! Anne and I are a bit knocked sideways by the news, but as Mick says, keep your pecker up!

Oh no, not another.
Such an inspiration, I always try to hear CMR at Whitby even if the harmony workshop is at a time of day with 4 other 'must do' clashes. First heard her and sang in her workshop when it was Bread and Roses.

Even back then "Home Boys Home" had me hiding a tear.

just want to point out I didn't actually say it was "inoperable and terminal" Sarah's still waiting for for more tests and consultations.It's still not great news but who knows. I'm just listening to the Whitby Choir recording that Malc did in the Brunswick centre, it sounds fantastic and it'll be put on "drop box" or some such access site so everyone can hear it.
Lots of love

Subject: BS: update message from Sarah Morgan
From: GUEST,flyingcat(moira)
Date: 08 Sep 13 - 07:40 AM

Dear friends, first of all, very heartfelt thanks for all your help. Could you please let other friends of mine (who aren't in this loop) know what the situation / prognosis is? I know they all want to help and also have demanding work and families. In general emails are best as I can read and reply when I am feeling lucid, I'm not always up for phone calls.

The other thing is that people's expectations can be hard to bear. I know everyone means well when they say things like "we can beat this together" or " keep positive and you can fight it" and that puts a huge weight on my shoulders as it is part of my nature to fulfil obligations and not let people down. There is also a line in a song which means much to me about being "wise enough to know when to hold on, and strong enough to let go". I will try to make what choices I have, wise ones, and knowing I have your support will help immeasurably with that.

Thank you all so much. These few weeks have been a huge learning experience for me, and I am finding it hard to imagine what I could have done to have merited so much loving care, and of course it says much more about you, my lovelies, than it does about me!

Lots of love

Sarah

Please know you are loved and admired, and many folks here will try their best to offer encouragement without added burdens, compassion without maudlin Lamentations, and voices raised in song to add to your voice. Please forgive us when we falter and fail...We'll keep trying.

Thank you for staying true to yourself.

It's the worst, when you're sick and you end up expending energy taking care of helpers.

I too remember the house concert in Maine. I'm a harmony freak, and you all were a special treat. Your concertina accompaniment was original and beautiful. Luckily for me, I came home with a couple of CDs. I was also pretty much in awe of just being in the presence of the person who made a song out of "Homeward", AKA "Home, Lads, Home".

Thanks Sara and Moira for letting us know.

Dear Sarah, I think I speak for my friends here in Edinburgh and Lothians TMSA when I say that we wish you the least bad of everything, whatever the prognosis. We have such lovely memories of the Singers' Gathering in 2009 when you and Moira and Carolyn took our Muckle Sing., and many of your songs and arrangements are still being sung, notably "Keep You In Peace". My friend and I recently did ""We'll All Be Smiles Tonight" in a little local charity concert. Hope you can keep smiling in spite of it all. Trish
