family music 138

As I drove to the cottage with my parents, I played music from old tapes on my phone.

When the duet came on of Mom and Dad singing, "Heaven", they shared a story about the song.

In 1982, Grammie Landers had a stroke at home and passed away a time later in the hospital.

On her piano, Mom noticed a page turned down in a music book.

At the top of the page, in Grammie's handwriting, it said, 

   "Sing this one."

Kay Morehouse, Leota Stairs, and Helene Gorman sang it at her funeral.
