My mom passed away last year, and this is my first mother’s day without her. In this past year, I’ve noticed that nothing that can bring mom to mind quicker than the right song. My mother loved music. She loved music in a way I can’t quite understand. Sure, I enjoy a good pop song, but for my mom, music spoke right to her heart. Her relationship with music was deep and personal, and it’s one of her legacies to me.
This is a story of mom through some of her favorite songs.
