A Tribute To John
– Why do the birds keep on singing?
– Why do the stars glow above?
– Don’t they know it’s the end of the world (Well, not quite but almost lol!)
– It ended when you said goodbye…” ( song originally by Skeeter Davis)
Despite numerous attempts at persuasion, cajoling, coaxing, blatant “bribery” and begging on bended knees to make him turn around, our dear Uncle John, worn, weary and adamant, is decidedly bidding us farewell.
Some people come into our lives for a reason – but people like John come into our lives for many reasons:
He steadfastly dedicated much of his time and energy to supporting us connect with David……..to effecting heart connections amongst us Aam’ers……….to impressing upon us countless values of life……….to directing us towards the path of understanding what constitutes great music……….and to demonstrating to us the beauty and succintness of the English language.
We have learnt and grown immeasurably through his guidance and knowledge.
But nothing remains unchanged forever.
Everything is transient.
John, like Georgy Porgy, has “kissed the girls and made them cry”.
And he is moving on. So must we.
Dear John, this video “People Come Into Our Lives For A Reason” is dedicated to you with our fondest love, admiration and gratitude.
Thank you for having been part of our lives, be it only for a season.
