My grandmother Nell passed away 56 years ago.  She was the person closest to me as a child. The only time I remember crying was when she died.  I have posted the following video before but the song, “Will You Go Lassie Go” was her favorite.

I also remember my Uncle Francis, who sadly loved his Jamiesons Irish Whiskey ,  ,more than anything.  He said that when he went he wanted a good Irish wake, one like Finnegan’s.
