Let me explain why I chose what might be considered a cheesy piece of music , but I think is beautiful .
Jane and I loved John Denver .in 1971 ,when she was becoming weaker, she bought the LP ‘Poems,prayers and Promises’ .We sang it a lot .
When Nim married John Hoy, she played John Denver’s ‘Follow Me ‘ at her wedding . Not many years later she played it at his and their 3 children,Robert,`David and Kate’s funeral.
Last night we attempted singing ‘Leaving on a Jet Plane’ – it helped having Michael on keyboards and quantities of alcohol in the bloodstream .
This morning as I was ( stupidly) thinking back to 8 years ago when the 5 of us had just gone to Barcelona , ‘Sunshine on my Shoulder’ came on the radio , and it made me cry real big ,fat ,sad tears.
