I know I am about a month late on this. Trud, that was a moving tribute and my thoughts are with you. I know it still hurts and will probably still hurt at times through the years; however, in time you will pull through and your sister will shine down on you. Yesterday, was the three year anniversary of my little brother's death. It seems surreal sometimes how long it has been, for other times it does not seem that long. I miss him everyday, but I know he is in a better place looking down at me.

September 9th is my sister Terry’s birthday & this is the first year we will not celebrate it with her.  I cannot believe it has been 8 months since she passed away. 

I think about her every day, of course.  I think about our relationship as Sisters and about what we went through “together”.  It makes me angry, but moreso sad that her life was over too soon…that she died before her time.  It’s not fair.

We didn’t always see eye to eye.  We could be mad at each other and say some pretty nasty things to each other, but it was always very temporary and we forgave each other readily. 

One thing the “Three T Sisters” could always see eye to eye on was The Beatles.  We all loved Paul the best.  I was always so jealous that my older sisters had Beatles wallets, but because I was too young, I got some silly purse instead.  I always told Ter I was gonna steal her wallet (cause Tracy lives too far away), but I sure never wanted to obtain it the way I did.

When we heard (in the Spring of 2012) that Paul was coming to Edmonton & Vancouver all three sisters were beside ourselves with excitement!  When the dates were released, Ter’s heart sank with disappointment.  The Edmonton shows were November 28/29 and she was having knee surgery on November 9/12.  Being that Rexall Place (the venue) has stairs everywhere – there is no way she could go.  She’d still be on crutches and it would have been nearly impossible.  First Tracy got tickets for the Vancouver show, then I got tickets for the November 28th show. Unbeknownst to Ter, one of her good friends, knowing she was a huge Beatles fan, bought her a ticket to Paul’s show on the 28th.   She was so touched, but had to turn it down.  Her friend went to the concert and bought her a t-shirt and a program and gave it to her for Christmas.  She was so thrilled about that.

Christmas Day 2012 was the last time I ever saw my sister.   She came in my house flaunting her Paul McCartney t-shirt in sisterly fun!  Yes, I was jealous.  The line-up was far too long for me to stand in if I wanted to see the concert, so I missed out on the t-shirt.  We had a great Christmas Day together as a family.  Five days later, without warning, she passed away.

On August 14/13, I found myself in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan getting ready to go to Regina to see Paul again.  I pulled on Ter’s Paul t-shirt and told her silently that she would be with me in spirit that night…watching Paul together.  Wearing that t-shirt to the concert introduced me to many warm, wonderful people.  When the concert began, as we were singing and dancing & I could feel my sister there with me.  When Paul sang “Here Today”, with my Sissy’s shirt wrapped closely around me, I cried from the bottom of my heart, wishing with all my heart she was Here Today with me.

If she was here today, she would have said “You got to see Paul twice in less than a year?  YOU are a spoiled brat!!”  And she is right.  I am beyond blessed to see my idol twice.  And I am beyond blessed to have had Ter as my sister.  And I am blessed at the bond we shared, as sisters and as Beatles fans.  No matter what happens in my life, whatever I may do…when I hear a Beatles song, I will always think of you! 

I know this is late but I had not seen this yet.  I'm so sorry for your loss Trud.  heart I'm so glad that you got to leave on a good experience with your sister.  

This was a really touching post.  *hugs*   heartheartheart

Lewis Collins of The Professionals passed away this week. The Examiner also mentions a Beatles connection:

DRUMMER FRIEND OF BEATLES DIES: Lewis Collins, who in his career was both an actor and a drummer who played at the Cavern on bills with the Beatles, has died of cancer at 67, the BBC reported Nov. 28. According to a biography on a fan site, he was one of the first to hear the Beatles' “She Loves You.” "I was the first punter to hear 'She Loves You.' Paul (McCartney) came back from Birmingham with a test pressing of the record, and one night, standing in his carpet slippers over a clapped-out record player, played it to Mike and me." According to the biography, his career included brushes with the Mojos and the Iveys, who later became Badfinger. As an actor, his work included the TV series “The Professionals” and a guest role on “The New Avengers” that starred Patrick Macnee.

Did/do you have The Professionals over there, Parlance? I thought it was just a British thing.

RIP Collins heart

I'm sorry, Emily, I just saw this. We didn't, but I know some fanfic authors who have loved that show for decades and introduced me to it.

From Paul's FB:

Paul pays tribute to Nelson Mandela:

"Nelson Mandela was one of the great men of all time. I particularly admired his lack of bitterness towards his jailers, which I think set the tone for South Africa's transition to democracy.

"I never actually got to meet him although I wished I could have done and, in fact, I would say he is the greatest man I never met."

- Paul McCartney

Sad news about half of the Rankin-Bass team:

Arthur Rankin Jr., the animator behind the classic holiday special classic “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer,” the “Jackson Five” cartoon series and dozens of other productions, died Thursday at his home in Harrington Sound, Bermuda. He was 89.

Rankin’s death was reported by Bermuda’s Royal Gazette. 

With his partner Jules Bass, Rankin ran the prosperous Rankin/Bass production banner that was behind a slew of specials and cartoon series from the early 1960s through the late 1980s.

The company was a pioneer in the use of stop-motion animation, which gave a distinctive look to its 1964 “Rudolph” special (pictured). Rankin/Bass also made a point of recruiting notable actors for its vocal talent, including Burl Ives for the Sam the Snowman role in “Rudolph.”

Other Rankin/Bass productions included “ThunderCats,” a 1977 animated rendition of “The Hobbit” and a 1972 hourlong special “Willie Mays and the Say-Hey Kid.”

A native of New York to parents who were actors, Rankin got his start working for ABC as an art director in the 1940s.

Survivors include his wife, Olga, and two sons.

There's more at the Royal Gazette article.

So many good memories...

John Henson, son of Jim, who was also a puppeter, died on Friday.

Also, a friend who's a Monkees fan posted on Facebook this article on Samantha Juste, former wife of Micky Dolenz. I didn't know much about her, but I did find this photo of her and Ringo:

 

Rest in peace.

I don't like this thread, but since parlance put it here.

Samantha Juste, can't let her pass without comment. She was a dancer on the BBC show Top of the Pops, and Mickey Dolenz met her during The Monkees 1967 UK visit. Mickey wrote a song about it, that also mentioned the Beatles ("...the four kings of EMI...") which he titled Randy Scouse Git after a phrase he had heard in the British comedy Till Death Do Us Part, but was widely released - after Mickey was asked for an alternate title as his was rude - as Alternate Title.

This is Mickey on what happened when The Monkees visited the UK, and he met Samantha, and this song gave her a small part in the Beatles story:

I don't know if this thread is only for celebrities, but rest in peace to Shameera Harris. She goes to my school, I didn't really know here because she wasn't in my grade, but it's horrible anyway. Apparently her dad was drunk and started driving as she got out and dragged her along. She was only 12. It's horrible to see someone so young pass away.
