Mingulay Obit: Johnny Collins (6 July 2009) (419* d) RE: Obit: Johnny Collins (6 July 2009)-funeral 13 Aug 13 Aug 09

It was a fitting send off to a good man, standing room only at the service and I'm sure that the roof will now need fixing down. It was obvious that those who sang and paid tribute to Johny's life were very moved by the experience as were those who listened intently to every word. Afterwards at the Social Club the roof once again was in danger as wave upon wave of choruses swept around the room, the only thing missing was that deep bass voice propping up the rest of us "ordinary" singers. Even the weather played its part.

A strange day in that it was sad and moving and joyous all at the same time, a moving mix of old traddies and foreign cultures, shanties sung as love songs, unspoken thoughts and abiding memories.

Rest in peace Johnny, you more than deserve it.
