21 June 2012 ...a day of sadness , but now also a day to look back and remember those special times and a very special person.

Viewing lakefront Homes today and watching Boats pass by brought back some rather special but amusing memories of my friend John Stephen Morris.Why ? Well the very last time that I set foot on a Boat with John it almost sank..... Jim , Brian , Wendy I am sure you will not forget that memorable day.
 
"That Rat Catcher from Yorkshire with that strange Northern accent who also had an incredible talent for bringing people together through the joy of singing" was a very apt description given at his Memorial concert held at Leeds city hall that truly captured the essence of John Stephen Morris.
 
It seems like only yesterday that John was fighting his battle with Cancer sadly knowing also that his company was also being broken up behind his back and being left riddled with debt by those he had once foolishly trusted.I digress ,I am not here to remind all about the unspeakable acts which sadly still continue to this day. Its not over till the fat lady sings ......
 
John very clearly left his mark on the Industry and seldom does one individual touch the lives of so many.

John would not want any of you to feel miserable on this very day so raise your glasses and remember John for the fun times........onwards

David thanks for reminding the people who loved John so much. I thought about him just before this anniversary. It is so hard to conceive that 3 years have passed, still there is an empty place in my heart and my voice because he is not here. I look back fondly at Italy when all of us hung out and had fun. I think about the day I really got to know John as a individual sitting at the cafe in Italy. It was a fun day and we met up with some of the other group and had dinner. He let me in a piece of his life and heart that he did not often share. Our friendship was platonic but he was an awesome guy. I miss him but I am so glad he is not suffering and he is at peace. We will all meet again some day. Love to you guys for the conversational memories.

There is not one day that passes without thinking and remembering John. He gave us so much fun and enjoyment with his music. We all loved the man and his wonderful talent. The hope is still alive in our hearts that it will continue somehow.
