On this day, 730 days ago, our hand was forced and we had to let the Leader of the Band go...
We had to let him go (I hate that expression, mostly because a certain Barrie, Ontario person overuses it, but it is what tells the tale most succinctly here...) after six days of my battling to keep him alive...
João Jacinto Borges Pimentel left this earth on a March 28th - 2 years ago for us, merely 2 days ago for him...
To honor him, as I always will, I share with you now the musical selections that are on his second memorial page - he who is the only Pimentel I know (and who remains alive) who deserves all the praise in the world.
Yes - that even includes ME.
But it is mostly another tirade against a few other chaps... Well-deserved!
No more of that here though; because I am honoring the greatest, saintliest man from this Clan -
the lambasting of the lesser ones does not belong side-by-side with my Father's Name.
Enjoy the music
as my mother, a select elite few and I relive the memories - for we knew him, and you did not.
You may yet though -
on the New Earth
or in Paradise
God Willing... +++
