    Always loved the bagpipes, especially this song. Beautiful tribute to your dad.

    Just revisiting this post, 1 year later. A little more poignant this year, with Mom passing only 40 days ago.

    I never shared the significance of the golden star that appears in this post.

    Dad passed due to complications from a massive stroke. One of the problems created by the stroke was the inability to talk, as he had a trach tube in place. Mom made him a sign board on which he would point to letters and spell out words..

    6 months (to the day) after his stroke, Dad took the letter board and spelled out, “STAR OF YELLOW GLOW” and then drew his final breath.

    Ever since, yellow or gold stars make me think of Dad.
