Mammy You’ll Never Walk Alone

Mammy will never walk alone

I left Mammy on her 98th birthday at the Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother Hospital in Margatenoon yesterday, as she drifted in and out of consciousness, hallucinating, often in pain from the struggle to breathe through infected lungs. The compassionate and professional medical team there (thank God for the NHS) were incomparable.

The detail of my mother’s death was confirmed to me by the ward manager, a Liverpudlian Red. It’s in honour of her and her wonderful team, who began yesterday by singing Happy Birthday to Mammy that I recount at a high level what Mammy went through.

God bless you, Mammy, throughout eternity. This song’s for you, and is sung by Susan Boyle, who like you is a jewel on the inside. By now St Paul will have told you that those who can only think of outside beauty are likely not to be found beyond heaven’s gates.
When you walk through a storm hold your head up high

And don’t be afraid of the dark
At the end of the storm Is a golden sky
And the sweet silver song of the lark
Walk on through the wind, Walk on through the rain
Though your dreams be tossed and blown
Walk on walk on with hope in your heart And you’ll never walk alone
You’ll never walk alone.


No hay mal que por bien no venga

Now 70, I'm getting back into website development and brand protection, as well as showcasing the delightful artistic talents of my beautiful wife Lynne. My projection will encompass a lifetime of database marketing, as well as the Christian democratic socialist ideals of my wife and I.
