music does it again!

We had my mom’s funeral yesterday. It was music that really made it such a special event. She certainly was a special lady, and the spoken word made that clear, but it was a few of her song choices, the added music we put in, and her relatives doing the performing that made the celebration a great send off for a wonderful person. And the clincher is how my ailing mom recently responded to hymns and carols. Wow! Music!

Mom danced 7 weeks ago, in pain from her illness, at my sister’s fun 60th birthday party. The music, that we thought might be somewhat “incidental”, turned out to be such a hit for the event. Amazing how music does that.
