|I have been overwhelmed by the amount of messages of condolence I have received since the passing of my dear friend Scotty Moore.
Coming only six months after we lost Scotty’s companion, the wonderful & inimitable Gail Pollock, I have now lost two of the closest people in my life. I will always cherish the 25 years of friendship we had and am so grateful that I was able to visit Scotty a couple of weeks ago to say my goodbyes. I could write a thousand words and still not adequately express my love and appreciation of him. So, for now, I’ll just say thank you ScottMo for your love, encouragement, generosity, modesty ,Humour, fantastic company, immense talent on stage and in the studio, and sharing your life & home with me. The Johnny Walker red is being raised to you this day. I miss you already.
Sincere thanks to all who have contacted me. Your love and support is greatly appreciated.

|This year I find myself being able to empathise with those who are struggling to enjoy the festive season.
In particular those who have recently lossed loved ones.
I'm also thinking of those embroilled in war around the world, the homeless on our streets and the needy having to use food banks.
Thinking with gratitude of the unsung heroes that work through the holidays for little money in our hospitals and care homes and all the essential service workers that help to keep us safe.
Whatever you are doing, Have a wonderful time and stay safe.
