It’s strange going from the being the daughter of a couple who has been together for forty years to being the daughter of a mom who is totally broken and alone. Or at least that’s how it seemed at first. But my entire family has pulled together and through love and a strong belief in God, we’re slowly mending.
At Dad’s funeral last year an interesting thing happened. The navy officers were performing Taps when a fleet of mammoth Dragonflies started to swarm around not only Dad’s coffin but all in attendance. They were nearly the size of hummingbirds! It was the most amazing experience I think anyone there had ever witnessed. They stayed and circled our group on that bright, sunny day, even as Uncle Don (In full Navy uniform) and Ted sang Danny Boy. And, strangely enough, they waited until the last words of the ceremony were spoken before they promptly flew off.
Since then, when a dragonfly buzzes past anyone who had attended Dad’s funeral, they feel that Dad’s spirit is visiting. It’s pretty amazing.
I searched high and low for this video. If one is going to present the 'real' Tony Bennett, they best well do it correctly. And yes, I'm a fan of Judy Garland as well. Take a moment and play this. It'll transport you through time. This is some old school talent, folks. They just don't make it like this anymore. Does the heart good.
