A Parting Glass For George

It seems as if I’m having to say goodbye to too many people lately. I just found out this afternoon that a member of one of my favorite Celtic groups passed away yesterday. George Donaldson was the Scottish member of Celtic Thunder. I never got to see him perform at all but I came across Celtic Thunder through Youtube and the same day I did my friend Tracy called me and said I needed to check out this group and I’d really like them. Turned out to be the same group. Synchronicty again. George was the Big Man and he had a big heart. I followed him on Twitter and I was always touched by his devotion to his wife and his daughter. I loved that he’d play video games with his daughter, and he always talked about his wife. He loved Celtic Thunder and I always loved seeing that smile. He had a distinctive voice, and I loved hearing him trill those r’s. My favorite songs that he sang were The Parting Glass and Mull of Kintyre with Ryan Kelly. So, tonight, I drink a parting glass to George. I wish I could have seen you perform, and I know you’ll be watching your family and your mates from heaven’s pearly gates. Rest in peace, George.ย Slรกinte.
