This is so beautiful. Very mfueingnal to me to see the youth of a long ago generation. My own 90 year old grandmother is in ICU tonight, dying, I believe, and with her goes the last of her generation in our family. It is amazing, isn’t it, to know that they were young and busy once, very different from the frail people at the end.I can tell from your words that you loved them. You were fortunate, and I have been too, to know these people that helped to create and shape our heritage.Thank you for sharing, and the song fits beautifully! One of my favorites. ~ Sheila
Even I don’t know what to say… amazing!
