When I'm light years from here in some other space, let me take the tear from your eye. X

He's alive and well in all our hearts and minds. And when we are all gone, he will live on in future generations hearts and minds. He abides. Peace.

Dearest Rory, On the 12/06/1995 I took my final exams at University and two days later you left us and we miss you. I began my life as a young adult woman, facing reality and the world after Higher Education. In the last 20 years I had to mature and grow up fast. Even I could not have predicted how fast the world would have changed with digital technology, mobile phones, internet etc. In 2003 I began my self discovery journey ( in spirituality and creativity) and in 2006 Susie began a similar journey as well. In a dream she discovered your music and she knew she would meet someone to share the love of your music. In 2007 Susie and I met at Waltham Cross through work. I already liked rock music, was learning the acoustic guitar and liked Ireland. I was the last person you would imagine to like rock music! We became friends and Susie told me about you. I bought your CD and heard I Fall Apart that evening. The end guitar bit did something to me. A psychic experience and you and your music touched my soul. After that I became a life long fan.
Since then you have become a mentor, guide, teacher, second father figure and friend to us. I don't know what the next 20years will bring but we are living in "awakened times". However one thing is for sure, your legacy will live on another 20years and beyond. With upcoming young musicians who play your music, your legacy is safe. I feel its time for me to give back now through writing, motivational work and maybe music and to settle. Susie is settled and giving through her music.
I wanted to add we remember your mum Monica Gallagher, Lou Martin, Rod De ath, Eric Kitteringham, Wilgar Campbell, Rodney Hunter and Dimitris Maniatis and many others whom we have lost on the earth plane.
Also many thanks to all those who support Rory's legacy and memory. The sheer hard work is amazing. Its great to be part of The Rory Gallagher Family of Friends and Fans in the world. Donal and Rory's family are in my thoughts and prayers today.
Finally as I told you in Ballincollig this year Rory, Susie and I will continue to play guitar. One day, in the not so long distant future you will play a very special concert for us and we will play with you on stage. It was good to be with you in Cork for the 20th anniversary. Till then stay safe. Look after all of us. All our love Subrata and Susie.xxxx

Remembering Rory by playing his music. I'm playing Tattoo'd Lady with my band today. RIP Rory, gone but definitely not forgotten.

Listening to a lot of your songs today Rory.
I heard a request played on Planet Rock this afternoon, was it your message Jay Jay that was read out after Crest of a wave?
Very nice.
