"I turned 70 on July 13, 2012. People were shocked! So was I. That’s why I
decided to record this song for the Folk Den on July 14. Last night,
July 31, my brother Brian called to tell us that my mother Dorothy had
passed away just three days after her 102nd birthday. We’d spent the day
with her in Tucson where my grandson James and I had played guitars and
sung her favorite songs to her."
