“Years before, Freddie and I had developed pet names for each other, our drag-queen alter egos. I was Sharon and he was Melina. Freddie’s note read, ‘Dear Sharon, I thought you’d like this.

“As sad as that moment was, it’s often the one I think about when I remember Freddie, because it captures the character of the man. In death, he reminded me of what made him so special in life.” From Elton John’s book, Love Is the Cure. Merry Christmas to the Most Amazin Musical Artist whom ever walked this earth, If you only knew how you are loved & terribly missed to this day. Have a nice day with Freddie Mercury Christmas Tree shirt. Thank you!
