    The “I’m Still Here” video I just watched touched my heart. Such a simple and wonderful performance! More important is the message in the words. Thank you for posting to the site.

    Emily’s song was haunting and beautiful. My dad had a form of dimentia at the end of his life, not necessarily Alsheimer’s, but devastating to all of us. He was a singer and broke into song for nurses and visiters at the drop of a hat. He always kept that part of him, even if he couldn’t carry on coherent conversations. When he passed away, I wrote about him constantly, desparately, for a month so I could capture on paper as many impressions and memories about him before they faded in time. I wish I could have created a lovely and perhaps somewhat desparate song as you have, because the music reaches into the depth of your emotion and resilience and strength in such a poignant way. I hope your mother has heard it even though it would be hard for her to hear. I will pray for you and your family.
