Does Anything Make You Remember??

Ok so I am sitting here listening to music, and My ABSOLUTE FAVORITE song is "Sissy's Song" by Alan Jackson. The reason behind it is cause I lost my mom when I was 14 - 11 years ago July 9th - and she was only 36 when she passed. She had leukemia and only made it 1.5 months after finding out. She passed so young and left 5 kids behind (then - 16, 14, 9, 5, & 1). We all miss her alot and when this song came out I just right away Connected to it. So my question for all of you is........

Is there a song or something that reminds you of a loved one that has passed?? If so what is it??

This one does it for me too!  My dad died when I was 13 years old.  I had a hard time at my wedding anyway knowing that he wasn't there, but then the DJ played this song as the father daughter dance!!  I had my step dad there, who I call and consider my dad, but I still cried like a baby!!

Daddy's hands by Holly Dunn. Reminds me of my dad.

My dad died when I was 15 in 1984 and my mom when I was 22 in 1992. They weren't supposed to die and leave me alone so soon. I needed them still.  Sorry for your loss. Even this many years later I still sometimes cry when i look at their wedding picture. I lost everything years back in a flood except for their wedding picture. It's all I have of them.

The wind beneath my wings by Bette Midler reminds me of my mom who passed away 1 year ago on Aug 14. She loved the song for as long as I can remember. The last mothers day I spent with her I surprised her. I taught myself how to play the song on the piano, which I have never played piano before and don't know how to play anything else. (I know how to read music b/c I played an instrument in grade school)  I played it for her as a Mother's day gift....I had my SIL's piano brought to my house just so that I could do it for her, she had been battleing cancer for 7 months at that point. She loved it, and cried.

I agree, & I am sorry for your loss. You show to me that you are a very strong person. I couldn't imagine losing both parents at such a young age then on top of it lose everything I have of them. I don't have much of  my moms things either. But I definately cherish the things that I do have!
