    1. That song is mesmerizing! Not as popular as some, but pretty. I think he wrote it for his mother.

  12. Hi Betsy,

    I really do like these pictures and these trips down memory lane. I can remember the day after the Beatles played on the Ed Sullivan show while at school if someone even mentioned any of their names that some girls would start screaming and crying about how much they loved them. I kinda thought they were a little crazy. I liked their music but was never insane about it. But nice to see he liked cats, and so much music was lost on the day he died.

    God bless.
