Glad that they have helped so many of us through difficult times.  Like Linde said..."just one band can have THAT much of an impact?" It's amazing what the Beatles can do.

I was thinking about a more recent impact the Beatles have had in my life.  In November 2012, both my older sister and I wanted to get tickets to see Paul McCartney here in Edmonton.  Unfortunately, she was scheduled for knee surgery on November 9th and would not be able to walk the steps at Rexall Place where he would be performing...so, she couldn't attend.  My friend was able to get us tickets and she & I were able to attend & of course it was the show of a lifetime!  I felt so bad that my sister, Terry couldn't make it as she had been a Beatles fan forever.  One of her friends did go to the concert and bought her a Paul t-shirt and "On The Run" Program and gave it to her for Christmas.  I wanted a t-shirt so badly, but the line-ups were so long...I didn't get one, but I still got to see Paul!  On Christmas Day, my Mom and Terry came to our house to celebrate with our family.  I was SO jealous to see my sister wearing her gorgeous "On The Run" Paul shirt!  She teased me about it in "sisterly fashion"! 

5 days after Christmas, on December 30/12, my sister Terry passed away suddenly..without warning :(   It was devastating.  A few days later, as we began the task of going through her things...we found many Beatle treasures, like her Beatles wallet that I now proudly own - and of course, the t-shirt & program.  My Mom & other sister said that Ter would want me to have them, so I do.

Most nights, I put my over-sized Paul "On The Run" t-shirt on when I get comfy and I sleep in it too.  It feels like a hug from my sister Ter and it brings me comfort.  heart 

I'm so sorry to hear about your loss heartheartheartheart

If ever you feel like you need to talk about your sister, you can do so here:

Moving along in our God given ways, safety is sat by the fire/Sanctuary from these feverish smiles, left with a mark on the door.

Thanks so much everyone heart  You are all very kind.

It has been 4.5 months since she passed, but it is still surreal to me that my sister is really gone.  There are still MANY times when I think to myself "Ter would love this!" or pick up the phone to call her.  Because we 3 (Terry, myself and my other sister, Tracy) all love the Beatles...they are a connection, a comfort to me...and being here on this site is really helping me too.

It will pass over time and you will pull through. I was so depressed after my brother died, especially since I'm older. The Beatles were one of the things that pulled me through. I have two special Beatle memories off the top of my head that always puts a smile on my face when I think of my brother.
