A dad's tribute to his fallen son

Sunday, August 25, 2013

This song was written by my husbands classmate and a good friend, Jim Ray who lost his son Sgt Adam J. Ray.
Adam was killed in Afghanistan February 9, 2010. Just a few months prior he had visited home and bought this guitar that his father is playing. Just days before his death his guitar was delivered and was awaiting its new owner to return home for the last time. This was Adams last tour before leaving the service to go into teaching. History if I remember right!

    It's wonderful that the father is able to express himself through music.
