Today's Her Birthday

Today is Sandy's birthday.

She turns 79 today. I took roses to her resting place this morning and told her how much I love and miss her.  

For the last three years of her life, we started participating at Karaoke. We had several songs that had personal meanings for us.

I guess it's fitting that her birthday fell on Karaoke night this year.

I'll be singing this one in Sandy's honor tonight.  God, how I want to be with her...

Army Vet, how sweet that you remember Sandy in this way.  I'm sure she'd be pleased.  George Harrison was always my favorite Beatle, too.

 I have a friend who passed away about a year ago and her husband remembers her with flowers, too - anniversaries, birthdays, etc.

This is for both of you. She would love it, and you will remember it for many years. Very nice thing to do.

I certainly understand that God how I want to be with her. I know that Sandy would be proud of you singing your special song in her honor tonight.                                                                

 I take balloons to Linda grave and write notes on them I tell her I love her and miss her then send them to heaven for her to read, I can’t explain it but it does give me some kind of peace,    I think it will for you also     God's Blessings to you Richard

I just got home from Karaoke this evening.

I felt like I celebrated Sandy's birthday tonight singing three songs to her - "The Summer Wind", "What Is Life?" and "Draggin' The Line". 

Several of our friends were there and they helped me get through this evening.

I appreciate the kind comments from every one who posted. I needed your support and it helped.

I just saw this thread, and I'm glad you updated. It must have been emotional to sing the special songs, but what a loving tribute! I had to listen to "What is Life" twice through, such a great song.
