Message:  You said it so well, Brian. I know at least for me, that Mickey's songs waver on the borderline of the deepest sorrow and the greatest joy. Especially in songs like "Three Bells For Stephen", he sounds
as if he's about to completely break down sobbing, and yet he perseveres to the end....the only singer I've ever heard able to sing that close to the heart. The words from Psalm 30 come tumbling back to me now.......
"Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning," Indeed and Amen!               "Dear hearts and gentle people, goodnight."
