This afternoon there was a memorial service at CARE for former resident Laura Martin. I played several upbeat songs during the 15 minutes before the service began and then, at the end, I played “Amazing Grace” in a fast tempo. Laura hated songs that were “dragged out”. Since I typically play everything faster than it should be, she liked my performances. Every time I played the piano for our Sunday vespers service she would hug me and call me her “Sweet Angel.” By the way, you need to remember that title. :>)
Laura had been in a nursing home for only a short time when she passed away on November 5 at the age of 95. She was an amazing woman who had been active in many ways in the Livingston community. We all miss her.
