Dan Fogelberg -- Rest Easy
This song always makes me cry. I remember my father -- leader of the band. The band of Ashworth -- chugging down the highway, raucous and roughshod in a V-Dub Bus, or waving from the back of a pickup truck or Model A. We were the rag-tag band and he was the leader.
And I miss him more than I can ever express. Especially this time of year, when memories flood back with every whiff of pine, fruitcake, and eggnog.
I only wish nothing had been left unsaid when he passed away. So much, too much was left unsaid. But I hope, I hope, hope, hope... that my dad knows we think of him every day. With love.
Here... take a moment... please listen to this:
