My cousin?s granddaughter has Down?s Syndrome and a couple of years ago was diagnosed with Leukemia, which is not uncommon for such children. After a grueling treatment regimen she went into remission status and when asked what she wished to do to celebrate, she wanted to have a big family party to mark the occasion along with her fourth birthday. I went to the party and promised her mom and dad that I?d compose a tune in her honor, and this is what I came up with.

Great tune Rick and a nice story behind it. Had that old time flow to it. The guitar backup was a nice touch.

Wow. This hits close to home. My first born had Down’s. We lost him at age 7 in ‘96. But that makes the tune that more special to me. I may work something around this and call it Aaron’s Tune...with your blessing, of course.

So sorry to hear that Greg. Go for it for Aaron. My blessings to you and him and your family.
