Kirk MacGeachy Dies

The warm and wonderful Kirk MacGeachy died suddenly of heart attack. His silver voice, his wit and wildness will be missed by 1000s around the globe. I helped Kirk with the words to his title track song, Moon on the Ocean. He was an incredible man and inspiration to me. Since I moved to Japan, Kirk and Pat came over for dinner when I returned to Canada every summer. I will miss him dearly. In his memory, I will add my own version of Moon on the Ocean to the next CD, The Emergent Sea. And I've written a song for him that will be recorded on the next to next. For now here is my obiturary for Kirk: To know Kirk is to love him. He, like dear Pat, is a free spirit who touches every heart who meets him(yes even now), fills it with laughter and a natural joy of life. A voice like silver-gold moonlight shimmering on Loch Gairloch, on the western shores of the Hebridean Islands, in the cool clear waters of the North Atlantic, He has not gone, he is only roving, his heart called him home. You'll see him anywhere the moonlight plays on water and where his songs live on, with his voice in our hearts.
