GUEST,Big Mick Why we sing. (137* d) RE: Why we sing. 26 Dec 00


Was there ever a more poigniant reason to sing? In my life I can't think of a time that I wanted to sing a sad song for all that Wesley and Bretta, at their young age, have had to endure. I cried more tears than a big man should have to admit to for the struggle of young Patrick to live. He, even in infancy, was a noble little warrior. Have I ever wanted to sing a joyful song more in my life? A song dedicated to this family and all that they have taught me of walking through life, full of grace? These young people helped their infant son to live every moment of his very short life. They inspired a worldwide community who smiled and cried with them at every bit of news of the wee lad's wellbeing. And when it was time to let go, and give the brave boy back to the care of the angels, they put a face on how one should face this most difficult trial with grace, love and appreciation. And then they turned to young Brendan, and the task of raising this wee man. I sing for this family for all they have faced and all they have taught. I am in their debt.

Mick
