My Friends in Kelty ©

10th March 1980, my house went on fire and I lost my wife who was 29 and my unborn daughter. My world ended then for my young son and myself and my friends helped me to see the way from then on. I wrote this for them, especially John and his wife Elizabeth and his brother Big Wullie Hargraves of Kelty in Fife, who helped me get over it all

John Bearcat-Redmond
Fife, Scotland
1980

You gave me courage when my life was bare
You gave me laughter so many times, that I can share...
You gave me feelings I had lost which are deep and true
And for that my friends, I will always care for you...
