Ave Maria - jazzygirlhal

Apr. 23rd, 2006 04:18 pm Ave Maria

One of my grandmother's two favorite songs.
Schubert's Ave Maria. My dear Grammy has been
dead for four years now, long enough that my
almost three year old will never me the flesh
and bones version of her. This happens to be
the case with most of my family so I keep them
alive through stories, and things like when I
tickle Lili I usually attribute it to Uncle Jon.
The past week I have been missing my Gram fiercely.

Khalila recognizes it and says "That's Grandma Gigi's song.
So yesterday I didn't sing along and just listened to
Khalila sing it (by the way, I have to get that on tape)
and in the middle of the part she knows she stopped to
tell me "Grandma Gigi says 'good singing Lili'"

Connected to my Grandmother, I started crying, it was
so beautiful.
