Pink Floyd Wish You Were Here
I am sure this song sparks memories for many people. For me this is a sad story about the death of my mother-in-law after battling cancer for several years. The day of the funeral was surreal to say the least. My wife was obviously devastated and I managed to get through the speech I gave at the eulogy. Then following funeral service, we all drove in the funeral procession to the cemetery. The very first song that played on the radio was Pink Floyd's Wish You Were Here. It seemed as if the DJ knew exactly what to play at hat very moment. To this day (~6 years later) my wife and I have a hard time listening to that song. This is a testament to how much songs can play a part in the memory of a loved one lost. I am sure this theme will be repeated over and over as we discuss songs.
