@Cynthia-Wigington  I've found great comfort in playing this song.  It may bring you comfort to play it, too. . . xx

Sometimes people play a song so perfectly that I never want to play it because I don't want to ruin the memory of that beauty. This is one of those songs for me - thank you.

Friends, I'm glad you like this-- thank you for your kind comments.  I hoped to honor my grandpa's memory.  He was a good man.  

Dusty, I feel similarly about traditional tunes.  I heard many old hymns through my childhood and youth and these songs connect me to memories and emotions in a powerful way.

Such expressive playing, Robin!  Very moving.  It is wonderful that you can play this song and connect with your grandfather who died 50 years ago.  One of the reasons I find traditional music so fulfilling is precisely because it helps us connect with those who lived before us.
