Overview

When my grandmother was sick and dying of cancer I played this CD for her over and over.She loved every song.It made her smile as she sang along.This CD made an old woman happy.I buried the CD with her she liked it so much.Now I will by it for myself and think of her and the times we had.Thank-You
