    John, I cant believe the 60 about you, I think, any time I see you in my visits to Cork you look younger and younger. I wont be able to be there for the “gig”, I will be in the company of my youngest son Aengus here in the mediterranean coast as I havent been in Ireland for a while. But I am sure you will have lots and lots of musician friends from all over. I will be thinking about you and all the great moments we had together.
    Have a great day!!

    Un abrazo muy grande para ti, y recuerdos a los amigos.
