"Thanks for the Memory"

Posted on Wed, Jan 6, 2016 at 4:00 AM

During this Christmas as in the the past seventy years plus I have heard the carol "Oh Holy Night" uncountable times in Cathedrals, Church Halls, School Concerts etc. All of these occasions while enjoyable at the time few are remember individually. However on Dec. 28/15 when I heard you it was if I was hearing it for the first time. Not in a cathedral, concert etc. But out from the depths of S/S Food Court your strong tenor (maybe) rendition of this powerful carol. I waited in anticipation for the "voice" to appear.....appear you did with crutch in hand and a plastic grocery bag in the other as you boldly continued walking through the mall strongly singing without missing a note. I listened to fade into the distance regretting I didn't follow you, To thank you in person. God Bless and thank you. —Coffee Drinker
