An Excerpt From DAY 14

“I talked. And played music. And told her I held more love in my heart for her than I did for any other person who ever lived. I thanked her for being the best mother a child could ever ask for. I told her I would see her again one day and that I would call upon her often after she was gone. I found three of her favorite songs online: Bette Midler’s, The Wind Beneath My Wings; Lawrence Welk’s, The Anniversary Song (a song played at my parents’ wedding); and The Battle Hymn Of The Republic. It had always been one of her favorites. She used to sing it to me as a lullaby when I was a baby. It was only fitting that I played it for her lullaby as she drifted off to her final sleep.”
