    I too understand your heartache right now. I am on the beginning of that journey with my own mother. Although she is not that far along, the Dementia has taken hold of her, and it is truly a day to day struggle, that I hate to see. You are in my prayers.

    Steve, as sad as this is, I'm strangely glad to hear that everyone in your family is on the other side of it now. Not meant as anything other than a virtual hug.
    Stay strong, and hopefully you can help create a celebration with family, friends, and lots of smiles and hugs. Gotta have some tears too, but all the pieces together make a lasting memory.
    Much forum brotherly love.

    Yes, that is the ending we all hope for. My dad gave himself permission to do that after a handful of goodbyes to people he hadn’t talked to in a while. One of them was a younger brother (70 something) who told my dad he had always been his hero. My dad said he never knew that, and then told his brother “you still have time to be somebody’s hero”. It struck me as a wonderful final sentiment.

    Layla -- egad, the emotion wrenched out of those vocals and that guitar, and yes, even though we've heard it a Brazilian times, I do mean the original electric version. The unplugged acoustic version is a nice version, but it's a pale shadow of the original.
    In The Living Years -- was big when my da passed away, couldn't listen to it for years, which means someone else had to go to the grocery store, because they played it there all the time
    Winter Kills -- Seasonal Affective Disorder put to song

    A few lesser known ones:

    Again, by Archive -- if a song ever captured that dilemma as to whether or not to break up with someone better than this one, I'd like to hear it.
    Drinking Song, by Rob Dougan -- it's the songwriter's plight
    Requiem, by King Crimson -- grief, distilled
    Lullaby, by New Model Army -- I don't have children, and I never will, because I don't get what it takes to be a parent, but this song is the closest anyone has ever come to explaining to me those feelings

    A few songs off the top of my head,
    You'll Never Know -Ella Fitzgerald. Reminds me of my Father ( probably his favourite song)
    Something - George Harrison. ( Just Beautiful )
    I will always love you - (Dolly has got a lovely voice).

    This one. I remember seeing the series of pictures that inspired the song.



    But this one - I’ve posted it before, but I have to be careful where I listen to this.
