Trust Bra Hugh to quietly slip away on my birthday. We were meant to do a whole album together. For years we tried to get it together but it never worked out because he was traveling a lot. I remember he arranged Tai Chi classes for me and paid for them because he wanted me to de clutter my mind and spirit before we started working. When I had my car accident many years ago he was one of the first visitors to come see me after hospital. Bra Hugh lived. He lived his life to the fullest. So I’m not too sad, and I’m happy he is no longer suffering. And I will remember him always, especially on this day, the day of my birth and the day of his passing. He is leaving us a legacy so vast, a music book so big. You have done well with your life Bra Hugh. Your name will never be forgotten. Fly free son of the Soil. Fly free ??
