I was honoured to play at a funeral today.

It was a funeral for our friend Leo.  He had cancer.

Leo, Marisa and I were in choirs together for many years.

Marisa and Leo clicked right away.  Marisa loved joking around and so did Leo.

Leo loved music.  Marisa loved music.  Leo loved Marisa and Marisa loved Leo.

I spoke to Leo many times over the past number of weeks as Leo got sicker.  Sometimes I didn’t know what to say.  So I would tell him that I loved him.  He would tell me same thing back. 

Leo was 74.

Marisa was 33.

Marisa’s cancer bothered Leo very much.

So I’m glad that they could reconnect.
