Dear Connie has Passed Away

Read Time1 Minute, 59 Second

This morning, my dear friend Connie MacLean passed away peacefully.

I kept her illness confidential at her request, although her closest friends knew of her illness these past several months.  Ralph, her son, called me to give the sad news.  I told him that I wanted to write a story about her but would need a day or two to get over the shock and hurt of her passing.  My heart goes out to Ralph – it’s so sad.

 

To be continued.

Dedicated to Connie MacLean 

 

Hugs,

Danny

Today’s tune from Danny’s library (purchased):

The Lightning Express – lyrics

The lightning express from the depot so grand
Had started out on its way
All of the passengers that were on board
Seemed to be happy and gay
But one little boy who sat by himself
Was reading a letter he had
You could plainly tell by the look on his face
That the contents of it made him sad

The stern old conductor then started his round
Taking tickets from everyone there
And finally reaching the side of the boy
He gruffly demanded his fare
“I have no ticket” the boy then replied
“But I’ll pay you back someday”
“Then I’ll put you off at the next stop we make”
But he stopped when he heard the boy say

Please Mr. Conductor
Don’t put me off of this train
The best friend I have in this world sir
Is waiting for me in pain
Expecting to die any moment sir
And may not live through the day
I wanna reach home and kiss mother goodbye
Before God takes her away

A girl sitting near was heard to exclaim
If you put him off, it’s a shame”
Taking his hand, a collection she made
The boy’s way was paid on the train
I’m obliged to you miss for your kindness to me
You’re welcome, ” she said, never fear
Each time the conductor would pass through the car
The boy’s words would ring in his ear

Please Mr. Conductor
Don’t put me off of this train
The best friend I have in this world sir
Is waiting for me in pain
Expecting to die any moment sir
And may not live through the day
I wanna reach home and kiss mother goodbye
Before God takes her away
