My beloved mother died on Christmas day a year after my father had passed away.
Story Behind the Song
When my mother had died the coroner's office called me so I went into her home to find notes to all of her children laid out on the dinning room table. After spending time trying to understand why this is what resulted from her missing my Pappa, her deceased husband and my late father. A note sharing the facts I surmised that hope for loving someone forever becomes a gift of life based on what is done and not in what is said.
That real love lasts longer than life itself as told in "Momma's Blues"
