This is my sister Katherine Eileen birthday! Happy Birthday where ever you are! She died 18 December 2003 after having suffered with cancer and other ills for decades. During those difficult years, she needed all her energy to try to hear. Consequently, she was not very available to her loved ones.

Even before being diagnosed with liver cancer and being told that she had at best 3 months, she had stopped talking or eating. Upon hearing the news, I called, not knowing what to say. In hearing her weak hello, I started to sing, “I Just Called to Say I Love You”.

However the lump in my throat snagged the words rendering me speechless. in the most clear, beautiful voice I had heard from her in decades, she picked up the song. Her spirit soared, she sounded FREE, as she finished the song!

At that moment all there was between us and around us was LOVE!

Thank you Stevie Wonder!!

Testimonials
“Parents and children alike will flash a big smile at the sight of the ‘ABZ’s of Musical Instruments’ a most unique and captivation technique of introducing children to music. The dazzling bright colors highlighting the alphabet, as well as the wide selection of instruments, will educate, delight and capture the attention of both parent and child. The extensive glossary of the many unfamiliar instruments adds to the usefulness of the book.” —Johnnie Osburn Dent, Veteran Librarian and Recipient of The New York Times’ Librarian Award 2001 for Outstanding Community Service.
