I sang for my Dad today … January 30, 2011
I called Dad this evening. Tonight, I sang to him. I sang “The Rainbow Connection” (Kermit the Frog). I heard him clearly do a “hahahaaaaaaaaaa” with a smile in the tone. These are the first sounds I have heard him make since late November, Thanksgiving. It was awesome! Happy day!!! End of story, I sang to Dad again, same song, knowing there was a smile on the other end of the line.
I love you Dad!
