For a beautiful lady who's battling hard.



This was our - or one of our - songs. The words perfectly summed up our situation when we first got together back in 1987. I first told Gail I loved her on Christmas Eve 1987 at High Wycombe Railway Station. Not a great place for one of the world's great romances perhaps but, as another song says. 'I had to start it somewhere, so it started there'.

Gail replied to this on Facebook
