Cool Harmonies farewelled yet another one of our beautiful choir members last Tuesday when we came together to celebrate the life of Pat Kelly.
Pat and her husband Bill joined Cool Harmonies back in 2007, and were with us for many years until they were both diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. Pat was an accomplished pianist and accompanied us on a number of songs, as well as performing some beautiful solos with her sweet sounding soprano voice. She was a very graceful and gracious woman with a strong sense of community and social justice. She also had the wickedest sense of humour and a smile that would light up the room when she entered.
A number of us were able to attend her funeral and it was an honour to sing a few of her favourite songs. Pat and Bill are now together, singing those luscious harmonies along with the angels. Our love and heartfelt whooshes go out to Pat’s family. She will be dearly missed.
