The band I nearly went to see with my dear friend who wrote his address on a box for me. Unfortunately he died. I often wonder that if I had been in when he came to take me to the concert, maybe that would have meant his life would have changed just enough for him to still be alive for his lovely wife and daughter. She will never know her father but I passed on what I could. I still have one of his letters.
