Tuesday:) Toni & Friends~ Tribute To Trini…You Are My Sunshine and Will Always Be

17 Apr

“Motherhood: All love begins and ends there.”

~Robert Browning

*******************

Mom’s favorite song was “You are my Sunshine.” We sang it to her during her final days and played it for her as a tribute after her final breath. It is one of my favorites because, when I used to call Mom in the morning and I’d ramble about this or that, she would always laugh and say, “You are my sunshine.” Then I’d giggle and ask, “But, am I your only sunshine? Do I make you happy when skies are grey?” Then, I’d burst into a full-fledged song and finish the tune while she mumbled, “I fell for it again.” I always had a show tune or song for her.

So, last week, when I went to karaoke at the VFW, I asked the group if we could all sing this song for Mom. They were more than happy to oblige. Here are a few friends singing a “Tribute for Trini.”
