I think it was in May 1961 that I attended your home in Blackburn with both of my parents to celebrate your birth. I am not sure if there was any family connection to either of your parents, but the fact that both my parents and myself were from Inishfree Island in County Donegal. I remember my parents talking about your birth.
It was a rainy Sunday afternoon we got the bus from Airdrie to Bathgate and changed there for the bus to Blackburn. I remember it was a council house we visited. There were a number of children present from about 5 years old to about 12 years old. They proved to be a bit unfriendly towards me. After being given tea and sandwiches my mother took me to the local park to play on the swings, etc.
I love the struggle of Susan Boyle who I watched and followed up, in her career, from the very beginning of her audition on BGT up to her final championship competition. It was so amazing and I found her to have that admirable life behind heartaches from bullies, and high hopes for a better future. Still at her fifties Susan, with the kind support of those who believed in her exceptional abilities and capabilities, reaped success as GOD’s blessings in her fight with her Dreams in memory of her mother and grandmother and for the love of her family. She continues on with her faith and Susan has put GOD as the First and Foremost in her career for being granted the greatest gift in her life! The Gift of a beautiful singing VOICE and a humble heart for the love to her family. We love you Susan.
