YOU’RE BESIDE ME

JUST A TUNE – PART 2

I love how Cheryl lives on for me through my songs. When I think of Cheryl, I am always reminded of how precious life is. She desperately wanted to live. I am blessed because my life is truly a gift. I’ve decided to unwrap it now and enjoy what’s inside. Continue reading

I recently created a new version of my former song “Music From Her Heart.” My new arrangement is in first person, hence the title of this post. But my post has another meaning, because I want to share words from a woman who is dying from heart failure. Continue reading
