For those who are unaware, my dad passed away last December and we spent the final days before he moved on from this plane on what they call 'death watch'- which is apt but rather harsh sounding.
My brother's song tells the story much better-
His dedication in this particular video is about a friend's father who recently passed- a friend that died in a car accident a number of years ago and just a few years after we lost our sister in the same way. These parallels in our lives have kept my brother in contact with Tristan (the friend)'s family, and I know he serves as a comfort to them.
For me death serves as a reminder to tell the ones we love just how much we love them. When all we have left of them is a memory, what that holds is directly dependent on what we built with them while they were here.
Tell someone you love how much they mean to you today!
