‘BEST’ fans comments flowing in
I am writing to you today to thank you from the very bottom of my heart for my personal inclusion in the superb book about George that I purchased today.
The last time we were in contact regarding the book you mentioned that the photograph of George & me was probably not of good enough quality to be able to be included, but hopefully the publishers would improve the picture to allow it to be used.
So it was with some apprehension and hope that I began flicking through the pages of the book inside Easons bookstore in Dublin this afternoon. On seeing my letter and photograph inside, I was filled with a mixture of joy when I began reading the extract.
To say I am honoured and touched to be included in such a truly remarkable tribute to my hero George would be an understatement of the highest degree.
This wonderful book will now take pride of place in my living room for the rest of my life. One of these days I hope to visit George’s final resting place in Belfast and hopefully I will meet you again to thank you personally for including my own special memories about how he made such a special impact on my own life.
He must be looking down on you Barbara with so much pride & love not only for this beautiful & definitive tribute to his own life but for all the devoted work & effort that you have given to the foundation in George’s name.
God Bless you,
