Nearly the original 'big mac' 20:56 - Dec 28 with 1371 viewsWilloW4

I spent Christmas flying over to Belfast because my old mate Sean McDonald was dying... I got the call 2 days earlier from his wee brother John that Sean was 'poorly' and he'd asked to see me.. A phone call with his da..told me that Sean wasn't long for this world.. I got straight on the Internet, booked a ticket for silly money and landed in Belfast later that day.. The reason I'm telling LFW's this.. Is that Sean (Big Mac)..was a staunch QPR fan..Belfast born n bred... But loved QPR..why?.. Cos his Dad Mickey came over to London in '67.. Worked mostly on the buildings in west London..lived in Shepherd's Bush and fell in love with the 'hoops'.. Both his sons became QPR fans cos Mickey wouldn't have it any other way... When I arrived in Belfast, John picked me up and said.."we've got some beers in, Sean wants to talk QPR with you."...I sat quietly in the car and thought .."oh, dear..what positives can I say"?...an hour later, after a few stouts and greetings with his family...( the nicest, funniest people .).. I spent 30 mins with Big Mac (Sean)..we had been roadies with named bands and caused havoc over Europe, but all he wanted to do..was talk about QPR...we remembered nearly every 'good' game...and Sweden tour pre friendly...we laughed a lot, mostly about being a Rangers fan...Sadly Sean passed away on the 27/12/16.. Our favourite player was/ is Big Mac/Macca.. RIP .xxxx. (Apologies if I've hogged a space on LFW.).

Sorry to hear about your friend passing away, mate, but great that you got the chance to say your goodbyes to one another and spend some time together chatting about shared happy memories. I'm sure it meant the world to him and his family.

Willow,
That must have been tough for you, tbh I think for you to drop everything and go over to Belfast for your mate shows what a good friend he must have been.
You seem like a decent bloke to me Willow, I'm glad your a Ranger.
