I made it to Paisley Park!

Via the kindness of a stranger…

I am not sure how this happened but it did and I am truly moved.  I am humbled by the kindness out there and completely amazed.

I found myself having a conversation with mnbucketlist on Twitter and we got to talking about how I felt that it wasn’t possible to get to Paisley Park from the UK.

She (mnbucketlist) lives in MPLS and kindly offered to leave a message to Prince for me at the grounds of Paisley Park. (She’s lucky enough to pass it daily).

I was completely taken aback by this kind offer and it took me a day or two to come up with what I wanted to say.

Well today it happened. My message to Prince, my goodbye, my thanks, is now hanging on the fence of Paisley Park with many many thanks to mnbucketlist!

I am so touched by this you cannot imagine.

Here’s my statement:

Prince. U R an inspiration. Eye can’t believe Ur gone. U’ve brought so much joy 2 so many. U will be sadly missed but never 4gotten. Eye wish U heaven. Rest in Peace. Keith (Colchester UK) x

And here’s the card in place outside Paisley Park

    Well that’s it then. I’m now a bucket of tears and mess. That was pretty fantastic of her to do for you. — This whole process of mourning the loss of Prince is going to take a really long time.
