I hope your Christmas is as happy as it is possible for it to be. Your many fans appreciate the soul you show us in your music. I only hope you can feel the love that we feel at this joyous time. Your Mother is still with you and she will share your joy this year, just as she always has. This “first” Christmas without her physical presence will be difficult, but she has not left you. Maybe this is the year to take out those “Thousand photographs” and have a laugh as you share your memories of the way you were back then. Remember, there are sure to be some photos of her as well!
