    that was special in a number of ways. Thanks.

    A number of ways indeed. Vince breaking down vocally but staying with it on guitar…Patty stepping in to carry the load…don’t know who affected me more. (Tears.)

    I understand Vince wrote that song in response to his own brother’s death. Can’t imagine him trying to play that at a funeral for his legend and hero as well.

    God bless them all.

    I don’t know much about the country music scene, but that was beautiful.

    That was very beautiful indeed. Thank you for posting that. I watched part of the service rerun last night but had missed that segment.

    Wow, I guess God just wanted me to cry for a little bit. Thanks for sharing.

    I tuned in yesterday while they were talking before they sang this song. I was able to see the whole service during a replay later. They had church, if you know what I mean. (Except maybe for Kid Rock and I’ll give him credit for being there. George’s preacher did a good job, too. (Well yeah!)

    It’s a good thing I had my box of Kleenex handy.

    This is a beautiful song, back in the day when the Church held the sword these people, their relatives, their cattle, and the family cat would have been condemned. I get that, actually I dont I dont understand what God has against non sentient beings. He hates them I get that from the biblical text. Actually God hates sentient binges fare more then the standard heathen. Can we agree that such rhetoric is complete BS. It is. Trust me on this.

    Having dealt with Chronic pain, the kind of pain that mind numbs you and has even made you black out, All that is puke I get that but it is the world view I operate in. I do not operate to alleviate some local milady that would mean I worship Satan I get that I really do. I wish for hope and some type of healing from the pain. Offered what very little it is worth.

    No one does sentimentalism like country folk and southern Gospel folk,

  11. Wow…that was incredibly beautiful! Thank you, Michael.
