Pay­ing trib­ute to de­parted friends

The Oban Times - - Leisure -

The pre­ma­ture pass­ing of friends, fam­ily and those close to us is a dif­fi­cult but sadly com­mon as­pect of life and touches all of us at some stage.

In re­cent weeks singer Mag­gie MacDon­ald and Piper Don­ald Campbell passed away and two years ago last week, Oban’s star High­land Dancer Eilidh MacInnes died aged just 44. Many won­der­ful trib­utes and obit­u­ar­ies have been writ­ten about all of them, but the fol­low­ing are just three anec­dotes that are part of the rich­ness of mem­ory and show the cal­i­bre of their re­spec­tive char­ac­ters. It was a great priv­i­lege to have known them and all have left us be­fore their time. The ac­com­pa­ny­ing song lyrics are on a sim­i­lar theme.
