AHHHH I CAN'T TAKE IT!!

*sniffle* I miss George's laugh too.

My heart goes out to George's family; I think Olivia is a really wonderful person.

Default I miss George\'s laugh so much

I miss George's laugh so much Mar 5 2003

By Gregg Fray Echo Reporter


GEORGE Harrison's widow has spoken for the first time about how she nursed her dying husband through his battle against cancer.



The ex-Beatle died in her arms at Sir Paul McCartney's home in Los Angeles in November 2001.

Olivia Harrison, the mother of George's son Dhani, has broken her silence to tell how he stared death in the face as lung cancer took hold in his final months.

The widow revealed her own hurt as Liverpool payed tribute to George on what would have been his 60th birthday.

Olivia said George's faith in God helped them both through the trauma of his death.

Olivia, 55, said: "George gave his life to God a long time ago. He wasn't trying to hang on to anything, he had come to terms with it.

"He said to me, 'You know you can't just start thinking about God at the end of your life, it's not something you just stumble upon, you have to work hard for consciousness and self realisation.'

"George had dedicated a lot of his life to attain a peaceful ending and I have no doubt that he was successful."

Olivia, originally from California, says what she misses most about George is his warmth and humour.

She said: "I miss George very much, he was a person I had a great connection with.

"When he was in hospital undergoing treatment, which was making him physically sick, he was still cracking jokes to make us feel better.

"George always had time for people, and he used to make fun of the fact he was a Beatle.

"Sometimes people would ask him, 'Aren't you a musician?' and he'd just say 'Well I used to be in a band'."

"Anyone who knew George, was acquainted with how funny and lively he was.

"The world is a much sad d er place for suffering the loss of such a beautiful man."

Wow, that made me all teary eyed and emotional.
I think George would be proud, Olivia sounded very distinguished-like!
Peace and Love,

It is touching.

Since we have some other topics about Olivia, I suggest we move this to Crackerbox Palace.
