A birthday message in memory of my mother from her favorite musical artist & saxophonist Kenny G.
It has been a few years since mom passed due to Parkinson’s disease. I have dedicated my life in memory of my mother for awareness and hope for a cure. Many nights I am restless wondering what I could have done more to have had her next to me still today.
One thing that has always positively impacted our lives is music. My mother and I shared a passion for music. She played piano and I played guitar our whole lives. As a child I lived in New York and remember heading to Broadway to see musicals and throughout life, mom always had Kenny G playing a saxophone while enjoying every song he created. I remember her going to see Kenny G several times, so I thought what I could do to surprise mom if she was still with us…. What would she have loved and been surprised by? Hmm… yes, a message from her favorite musician Kenny G that got my family though happy and tough times……… sending love on your birthday in heaven. We miss and love you! Please enjoy.
