Tears, booze and bad singing...we'll miss you Barbara

Nearly a year ago today a small group of GLG Austin folks flew across the Atlantic together to begin our Irish adventure. A year later, we've gone through a lot together and really gotten to know each other. Nearly everyone has decided to stay another year...all but one. Our friend, bright, always smiling Barbara and her husband, Daniel, have decided to return to sunny Austin. They will be desperately missed. Barbara's incredibly positive attitude really added something to the sarcastic group of ex-pats here. We couldn't let her leave without a huge send off though. So Saturday night the troops gathered for a proper surprise-karaoke party. Lots of tears, booze and bad singing later (not necessarily in that order) we were able to say our goodbyes. Our little GLG Dublin family is growing and changing seemingly every day now, but the original gang will be hard to forget. We'll miss you Barbara and we'll be back with you in Texas before you know it.
