Good-bye to our Musical Muse

Today was our last day with our Dancing Heart VA Adult Day friend, Stan.

He is heading to a facility that can give him good 24 hour care. Today all of us at our Dancing Heart session at the VA honored him with an award from our “hearts.” We thanked him for bringing to us his love of music – from Ray Charles to Bing Crosby, Elvis Presley to Hank Ballard. He reminded us “that there is nothing more beautiful in the world then music.” We reminded him that he will always remain in our hearts – and that his love of music will continue to inspire us. We danced a “dance” that we had choreographed to a Hank Ballard tune – inspired by his musical musings. Our last song, “Thank you, Thank you for this Great Big Love” by Barbara McAfee was dedicated to him.  We will miss him and we know that his legacy of loving music will continue to nourish our dancing circles.
