Terry and I celebrate our 30th. wedding anniversary on the 27th of May. We were married on my birthday in 1979. Best birthday present I ever got. Thanks, Terry, for 3 wonderful years (oops, that should read "30")
For all the younger generation: Dessie is Mams brother and our uncle. He was a great wit and the stories about him are endless. He had a beautiful voice and sang in productions around Dublin. He was a light tenor and sang the parts of light opera very well. He used his voice sparingly and was not one to show off or just sing for the heck of it or just to join in with the crowd. Therefore, to hear him sing was a treat because he didn't waste his talents and used them appropriately. He had a dry sense of humor and could be counted on to supply the right few words on any occassion. He never married. He was an all round good fellow to be around and always made you laugh.
