WILLIE NELSON: ANGEL FLYING TOO CLOSE TO THE GROUND

Mon Jan 21, 2013 3:36 am

I heard some sad news this week from a relatively distant friend, someone I used to work with. He's about 25, and a couple of years ago he married, but neither he nor his wife let on that she was terminally ill. She passed away this week. Hearing the story reminded me of this lovely song from Willie Nelson, one of his most moving I think, but not one heard a great deal in the UK at least.

Very sad to hear this story. My sincere condolences to him and his family.

When I saw Willie in concert in 2010, I think hearing him perform this amazing song was one of the highlights of the concert.

A very beautiful, sad song - I've listened to it quite a bit over the past few years.

I'm very sorry to hear about the young lady; my condolences to your friend.
