There are so many wonderful memories I have with James. From (obviously) caps to senior prom to visiting each other at college and tobogganing (while driving him crazy that I couldn’t get the word right), cottages, weddings, to phone calls that were too far between and always ended with “love ya, Welches. We gotta do this more!” One of my favorite memories was driving somewhere with him, learning new songs and singing old ones together. We all knew James’ love of music.
Well, Mrs. O’Connell reached out to me recently and asked if I would record a song for her that Kelly introduced her to, Charlie Puth’s “See You Again.” She sent it to some family, but asked me to share it here too, along with my message to her.
“I hope you like it. I just love the song. I read something the other day I wanted to share. ‘The size of your grief is a reflection of the depth of your love.’ James was so loved. I miss him so much. This one is for him.
All my love,
