We Miss You George

It was five years ago today that we lost George Harrison, at the young age of 58. He died in Los Angeles that day of cancer, and he fought bravely against it for nearly a year. On hearing of his death that day, I felt another part of my youth pass away.

He was truly a genius of a musician, songwriter, and was an even better man.

I know God has rewarded him.

We'll always miss you George.

It seems like it's been longer than 5 years. I wasn't around during the Beatles era, but I've been listening to them since I was in junior high and it's always a sad time of year when it gets to the end...George and John.

Great post. George's songs were some of my favorites.

Very nicely put, Laura.
George's songs will stay with me forever.
