God Only Knows what I'd be without Him

(Song of The Month)

It was Christmas when I first listened to this song. Andy Hallett had been in my life for a very short period but as the song says God only knows that this one would speak straight to my heart and remind me of this awesome man that left a big whole inside of us  and that could never be filled by anything or anyone. 

This song will just speak again about the big love, passion and devotin  I feel for a man that cannot longer know how he keeps touching people's lives and hearts. 

He wouldn't need to doubt it, if he could only see or feel. I truly wonder how he would feel or what he would think if he could knew...I don't mind much, to be honest. just as I make sure people won't forget about his grace, talent, voice and giggles.

Just a line that goes deep inside and reminds me of what I am because I found him.

And Oh those violins are like touching starts with my hand. One of those I know it's our Andy.

My imagination goes wild when I listen to Michael Bublé. Wouldn't be awesome if these two wouled ever duet? I can so picture this song with Andy's voice. It would give me goosebums, it would bring tears to my eyes but not because I shall feel sad but because of the way he touches my soul, like he once did...

God only knows what the world would be like if he was in it.

New and Fresh Look on The Site: Visit Now!

I think I finally made it. There are some new changes on the website you might appreciate.

Now you can find some helpful labels on each post so you can navigate easily around here (Categories, on the left top of the page). You even have a SiteMap to see the descriptions to each post and read those you are most interested in. I have been able, finally, to enable comments on the blog so you don't have to give extra information.

You can find a PhotoGallery (Photos) with all the photos of Andy that I have found around Internet. Pinterest have given me the easiest way to share those photos and to clasify them. So now It's all a lot more organized. Get into my Pinterest Profile to get ALL the photos!! 

Coming up very soon, I will be start a new section called YOUR STORY with all of  your stories, those that some of you might want to share about the day you met Andy or any other reference to his life that you lived in first person.

As I said in earliert posts, my only goal here is to keep Andy Hallett's memory. Make sure that his giggles, music and talent live on forever in our world.

Got something to share? Please leave me a comment or contact me directly.

No Sadness Allowed.

I know it's hard not to be sad when someone you appreciated, admired, knew and loved has gone
right before you can even blink. I know it's hard to stay positive when such thing turns to be a tragedy, when the person is gone was too young to die - whatever the reasons, mostly of them on unfair develop of life circumstances.

I can understand because I had people gone but I think of them, when I remember those that were gone and important in my life, I always try to smile, try to remember those memories I have on them. Tragedies happen - way too often, I'm afraid-. We get people gone when we are not ready and takes too much to heal the wounds -if they ever do. But one thing is certain, you never get over it, you learn to live with it, you learn to live with them in your memory constantly, you learn to live, to relate everything with "if he/she was here...". The pain learns to remain sleep on your daily life, the pain seems to be numbed. Your heart learns to live with the little whole inside of you.

So no pretending to be frivilous on all this. I can never imagined some people's pain when it comes to Andy. I know what shock must have been. I can't even imagined, even with my powerful imagination and (sometimes) empathy... you can never tell such pain.

What I pretend is this place to be a fun place to remember Andy. This can be a fun one. I mean, there's a fact we cannot deny, Andy made us laugh all on many ways, not only as Lorne but in some other moments. I even laughed when I was reading an interview on him: imagining his giggles around the room would be enough reason to bring a smile to my face.

Please take no offense on what I say. I want happy memories, There's place for a bit sadness but I don't want to focus on that. I try to focus on the laughs - and every now and then when you laugh too hard, tears come up without noticing. We are all human and we need some solace.

Andy Hallett - his memory must live on forever

But to be honest with you, I'm still struggling with Andy's being gone. I sometimes wake up in tears, when I have a little more of stress at work or life in general, emotions go through the roof. You might have noticed if you follow me on Facebook or Twitter. I have my days.

But I won't let sad feelings run through me easily. I hate that because it would take me very easily to a dark side, a dark side I know well and I don't want to go back to. So I try to let the sadness away from this place and from me.

My tribute is to make sure Andy's giggles and voice remain forever in this world (a bit like when Angel wakes up to Lorne's singing American Anthem at the Hyperion on Season 2), and to reach that goal, my dear reader, I need to bring some light and laughter into this every-day-darker world.  Let it be by my daily tributes, my importante-dates-Tribute (with all of your help in this), the music (that Andy helped to reconnect with), videos,photos, screencaps or anything that my mind can think of. And of course, your suggestions and comments will help to make it happen.

We all want Andy to be happy and to rest in peace wherever he is. Once said that, once we know we are going to pray for his soul everytime we have the chance, it is time to have some fun on his honour. Let his life and his legacy lead us to a fun, inspirational, bright ride of life. As I like to say, let his life inspire yours.

One of the moments from Angel The Series, Season 2

So my only rule here is: visit, read, share, comment, cry, laugh but most of all, enjoy what this amazing soul left us and please, let him inspire you to bring some bright moments onto your life.

I'm sure we'll meet him on the other side when it's our time but meanwhile let's enjoy the ride.

Who said Lorne can't make a good fighter?

Just the other day I was watching for a second time Happy Anniversay on Season 2 of Angel. It will probably become one of my favourites because of what Lorne adds to the gang without noticing.

The world was about to end because a guy is about to end it with one of his experiments. Lorne visits Angel and tells him the latest news. He doesnt seem to be very impressed because he is too busy with his own vendetta. One of the darkest episodes of Angel and probably one of the best.

They need to find the guy to stop whatever the event he is doing to end the world. On their way to him they come across with these awkward demons and how do you think Lorne helps? He gets that high note on his beautiful voice.... and he beats the demons!

So after all he can fight. He can do in a very Lorne style being just like he is not forcing him to be nothing he is not. You can even notice his face of pride after knocking them out.

This is also the first time Lorne gets into the Hyperion and notices the accoustics of this place. He wakes up Angel on a beautiful version Amercian's National anthem.

This is one these episodes why I get so frustrated because the writers didn't take all the potential that Lorne could have and turn into more of a the gang part (specially on season 5).

I actually think I could watch this episode on and on and on, and never get bored. It has it all.

Of course, this my very own opinion, you might like to share with me what your thoughts are on this one? Drop me a line! Thank you.

Tribute to Andy Hallett: Want to Join me?.

There are two major months in the year to tribute Andy publicly.

I know some of us do a daily tribute by taking him on our heart, a keyring with a photo of him or maybe taking a photo somewhere else that helps to feel Andy close to us.

What I want to do in these two major months (March and August) is a very special tribute to him by posting on our profile pages of all our social networks a photo of us customized as Lorne and the hashtag  #IloveBeinGrrreen (It's important those 3 "R" to difference it from this eco movement) and #AndyHallettTribute  #IWillNeverForget.

Ok. Don't panic here. You don't need to disguise if you don't want. There's an easier way to do. You shall take a selfie of yourself and then edit photo on your cell phone and turn your skin into green, it's so easy!!! Just see this.... Let it be as GRRReen as you can ! 😃

When you upload that to Twitter remember (I recomend to share here first so you have the definitive photo to share everywhere) to  put the red horn sticker on the photo and done! You got your #AndyHallettTribute 

Share on Twitter, then save that photo and share on other places if you have Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat etc.

It will look like this:

It's just simple for 24 hrs all around the world on March 29th and August 4th would be nice to see all the Andy Hallett admirers and friends reminding him by doing this. Wouldn't it be awesome?.

If you want to join me on this next March 29th (and August 4th), please share this post with all your friends and let's pay tribute to this unique soul that left us way too soon.

Remember to tag me @myandyhallettsp Twitter and Facebook. 😛
