Today’s show dedicated to the memory of our friend Terry
Terrance Vernon TALBOT 1938 – 2010

Poem:  When Tomorrow Starts Without Me..

Terry was born in Glace Bay, C.B. and although he moved to Montreal his heart never left his native land.  He loved Cape Breton, the culture, the people and especially the music. 

There was never a kinder man with such great love and respect for all the talented C.B. musicians.   Terry knew them all and he knew every tune they played. 

Terry often talked about C.B. Tartan …saying he was going to have a kilt made.  Well Terry, I feel sure you are now clad in your much loved Cape Breton Tartan. 

I think Terry knew and respected every fiddler that ever came from Cape Breton Island.    They were his friends and he was theirs.  The feeling was mutual. 

Terry are the angels in heaven playing the fiddle?  I’m sure they are.

I can invasion Terry sitting in a heavenly place, leaning back, with his legs crossed, resting in his chair, eyes closed, smile lighting up his face as he listens  to the best music he ever heard 

Terry, we will miss your wonderful smile and the joy that showed on your face when you heard a good fiddle tune. Keep smiling down on us.  We need that warmth to get us through this sad time.

 Rest in peace, Terry
