Washington (ANI): English singer songwriter Julian Lennon has revealed to his fans, who were offering him condolences on the death anniversary of his father John Lennon, that he no longer mourns for his dad. The late Beatles member had been gunned down by crazed fan Marc Chapman in New York on December 08, 1980, and fans all over the world still gather together annually on the date to mourn his death.
But now Lennon's 45-year-old son has revealed that he no longer grieves for his dad and is thankful to him instead. "Something very sad happened many years ago on this date but I don't live and breathe this date the way many of you do," Contactmusic quoted him as having written on his official webpage. "I appreciate your intentions and prayers but I refuse to be saddened this day or by any other memorial day. "I glimpse back over my shoulder, only to thank those that have gone before," he had added.
