First song that came to mind so I’m going with it…..
Dedicated to one of my very best friends in high school, a talented musician.
I wrote this last year for his obituary guest page.
“Jerry was my best friend in high school. We covered many deep subjects in many long conversations throughout our time at Natchez High. And we sang together, both of us tenors, in a choir, as well as in the “Duzin Cuzins”, a folk singing group. As happens, somehow time sped by but we were reunited at our 40th high school reunion. He was still Jerry…sweet, funny, talented and ethical to a degree few ever reach.
I weep for his much loved family, and wish I could be there to celebrate his life.”
Jerry would have passionately agreed with Helen’s childhood, end-of-the-world story.
This song always brought tears to my eyes during the long stretch Jerry and I were out of touch. Made me think of him right up to the end.
Wait, that was WAY to heavy and sad.
Here’s your comic relief. After all, the end may be near…….
And once again, WAIT. I just found THIS on YouTube. This is my dear friend Jerry’s son, Tyler Flowers. Worth a listen even though the lyrics don’t exactly fit today’s theme. But with a topic like this, I figure we need all the good music we can find!

Ugh, I love James Taylor. He is a brilliant musician. Great pick for this week. I’m so sorry for your loss.
Great song, and Tyler Flowers is pretty impressive too!
His voice sounds so much like his Dad’s it makes me cry!
Heard this one just the other day and it makes me think of someone who is gone too. Sad.
It’s a beautiful memorial for a lost or missing friend.
