IN MEMORIAM

JEFF HEALY

1966-2008

Life is bitchingly unfair. Jeff Healy knew that. He had cancer in his formative years since age one which eventually made him lose his eyesight at a very young age. He had every constitutional right to be bitter, to be an angry raging bull and to hate life with a passion. He didn’t. He channelled such energies into music and boy he was one of Canada’s brightest and best musicians. His work through his songs was in no way shallow (Britney take note), his disability made sure that he would never, EVER take that route.  Sadly his lifetime battle with cancer was lost Sunday. Thank you Jeff for the memories and work you left behind. You will be missed but your work will live on. Rest in peace, Jeff.

I could not help but to add his song during my teen years “Angel Eyes”. Thanks again Youtube.com.
