Radio Tale #24: Country Music for the Rest of his Life
This personal narrative explores my father’s final two days of life where. As I stayed with him at his care home, I played the country music that he loved so dearly, spoke to him of his life with my mom, my gratitude for what he gave our family, and updated him on all of his children.
