A LETTER FROM ROBIN GAYLE WILLIAMS

Robin Gayle Williams is a huge Celtic Thunder fan and her love for them has made her granddaughter Abigayle (btw this lovely name came about as Robin’s son said he wanted part of his Mom in her name) as big a fan. Robin had written to Elaine about Abigayle’s crush on Damian and Elaine thought it was so cute. She asked could we include it in the Celtic Times. This letter is actually in two parts as something happened after the first one was sent to Elaine.

…so read on and I hope you enjoy Abigayle’s story as much as Elaine did!
