A day of great sadness,but..

would he have wanted us to be sad?

Always know that we miss your presence here with us,George, but we want you to be happy where you are.

 

It’s still hard to believe it’s been 9 years already.

    I don’t think George would’ve wanted his friends, family, and fans to be sad… nor is it that way for anyone we love. It does hurt when we lose someone, but I guess what we can do is just remember the joy they’ve brought us in our lives. R.I.P. George Harrison, and thank you for your fab music. You will always be missed.

    And btw, great choice of photography. The landscape looks so cheerful and peaceful. Is that some of George’s gardening?

    9 years seem so longbwhen its written down, I still remember hearing the sad news of his passing. I’m glad you have this blog as a reminder of his beautiful life.
    Thank you.

    agreed. I remember how shocked I was when I heard the news…I actually cried. I remembered thinking how resilient he was to have fought off that crazed knife-wielding attacker (who’s now free on the streets BTW) only have him pass so shortly afterwards.
    I know he’s at peace where he is now, and that his fans, friends, wife and son miss him dearly.

    I was surprised to find that though I knew what today was, I wasn’t as sad as i expected to be but i did listen a lot of his music which helped because then you know that he is still alive in his music.

    Y’know, sometimes I have a couple glasses of wine and find myself watching sad videos of the Beatles, particularly George (of course), and cry. BUT today.. I couldn’t get myself to cry. I was sad, yes, but I watched the clock continuously for close to an hour waiting for 4:20pm to roll around (1:20pm LA time – The hour in which George passed nine years earlier) and just though ‘Wow, that’s it. How weird’

    So your comment ‘would he have wanted us to be sad’ is a definite no. I’m quite sensitive to his and John’s deaths, and I’ve kept a smile on my face all day. He definitely was one of a kind, and so selfless. Hare Krishna, George! I love you in oh-so many ways.

    Isn’t it funny how time slips away? The first time I saw George I was a kid peering through binoculars at the Atlantic City Convention Center. The year was 1964. He was only three years older than me but he seemed younger. Seeing him in person, I thought he was a living doll. My cousin, who was one year younger and my sister was four years younger than me, George was our favorite. I will never forget that wonderful day in August seeing the Beatles. The Beatles is a reminder of the “good old days” of my youth. George will always be in my memory and in my heart.

    George Harrison is love–> George Harrison is loved. Every time I think about it, I’m thankful knowing that I got to live a moment with George. I was a tad younger than him, about 19. I was screaming all their names at The Cavern. I remember being obnoxious by pushing through crowds of people, trying to get to the very front row to see closer up. I thought I was their biggest fan there. Finally getting up front I about fainted by realizing how close I was to George. Later when they left the stage, me and my mate scurried out to look for them a bit later, with not very high hopes. Soon, I saw George and Ringo. I don’t exactly remember where, just that they were taking a smoke outside. My mate spied them and with a burst of speed, went towards them. I was following her, filled with excitement so brim, I was just about to burst, though I didn’t (Thankfully, that would scare them away!) The last I remember, was me shaking George’s hand, along with Ringo’s. It was one of the best days of my life.

    For that entire day, I kept completely silent for him, not counting me praying the Hare Krishna Maha Mantra for him.
    Rest in peace, “My Sweet Lord”

    here’s a poem I wrote in remembrance

    an excerpt of “On Your Day of Days”

    1st afternoon in heaven
    you open your eyes
    transported
    your feet touching down
    on the smooth golden sea of glass
    you only wanted to see Him
    now you do
    and that LOVE THAT IS AS BOUNDLESS AS THE SEA you heard tell of
    well, now, you know what that is
    and it’s more than you could have hoped for

    1st evening in heaven
    you’re exploring
    discovering this new, peaceful, permanent place
    you’ve come to
    feeling, for the first time
    you’re home, really home
    you’re overcome and overwhelmed
    and in awe
    like the man I know you are
    and like the little boy you seem to become at the sight of Christmas lights

    Now you’re swallowed up by the Light of the World
    and that PEACE THAT PASSES UNDERSTANDING you heard tell of
    well, now, you know what that is
    and it’s more than you could have ever dreamed of

    1st morning in heaven
    and you watch the sun rise from a different perspective
    and you try to take it all in
    what happened, what’s happening to you
    your eyes are opened
    your heart is full
    and your purpose clear
    revealed after all this time
    comes the Comforter, comes resolve
    and the Living Water
    washing over you

    and that JOY UNSPEAKABLE you heard tell of
    well, now, you know what that is

    and it’s yours
    for all eternity

    and it’s more…

    so MUCH MORE
    than you could have ever imagined

    rest in hope and joy and love, my dear sweet spirit
