24 Notes

This brought a tear to my eye, great story! Thanks po11ycheck for sharing it.

The Ramblings of a Crusty Old Sailor

  1. Thank you for posting this, Nancy. Cheryl

  2. Oh geez. Why did that make me cry? The melody is haunting.

    • It did me too! Touching and haunting! My brother-in-law played this as my father’s ashes were spread.

  3. Thanks so much for sharing Nancy…very moving.

  4. Very nice–thanks for sharing.

  5. Beautiful – what a gift. I remember while living on post as soon as taps would play cars would pull off to the side and people would get out and stand at attention (awesome to see military lined up that way) or in housing some of us would go outside and stand at attention. I wonder if they still do that on military posts. On occasion I would be driving and joined the other motorists in this wonderful military tradition. Thanks for sharing and bringing some peace in my life today.

    • I would probably cry each night seeing that. But it would be worth it to see it happen. God Bless!

      • I hope they still do it.
