Time is a funny thing, it comes and goes and before you know it, you’re another year on.

Although life continues, there is an instinctive need to mark the passing of time, especially when it comes to births, marriages and of course deaths.

Over the last year, on the 8th and 9th of each month I have remembered Abram. First it was one month since we married and he passed away; then it was three; my own birthday was six months since he left us; we reached 11 months just a few weeks ago and suddenly, out of nowhere, the one year anniversary is upon us.

As there are many people who loved Abram and were touched by his warmth, enthusiasm and music, I wanted to do something to enable others to come together and celebrate the life of someone we all miss very much.
