There was Singing..

December 16, 2014

.. there was waiting.

We knew it was just a matter of time–hours, maybe a day. Throughout the day, we hung out, talked, told stories. It was a little teary, but mostly people were staying upbeat around Uncle Vic and each other just to keep it all together. Lots of visitors.

Aunt Jane (really, Uncle Vic’s first cousin and one of his favorites) and husband Jon come from Berkeley, she with an autoharp she’d acquired recently at a garage sale and just learned to play. She’s got a beautiful voice and a charming, open-hearted spirit. What a joy!

She sat at Uncle Vic’s bedside and played a bunch of songs. Then she sang Time After Time (the 1940s song, not Cyndi Lauper’s) and kind of brought the house down.. only because, unbeknownst to her, this was Uncle Vic and Aunt Joy’s song, maybe not their only song, but one they loved and danced to.. right there in the foyer. We’re told.

TIME AFTER TIME

Time after time, I tell myself that I’m

So lucky to be loving you

So lucky to be the one you run to see In the evening,when the day is through

I only know what I know, the passing years will show

You’ve kept my love so young, so new

And time after time, you’ll hear me say that

I’m So lucky to be loving you  

I only know what I know, the passing years will show

You’ve kept my love so young, so new

And time after time, you’ll hear me say that

I’m So lucky to be loving you

(From the film “It Happened in Brooklyn” (1947) (Jule Styne / Sammy Cahn) Frank Sinatra)
