OUR FATHER

In March 2017, my world was changed forever. My husband Gary unexpectedly died. My life was shattered. Gary’s 2nd love (family being first) was the Langsford Mens Chorus. He was a very active participant, past president and was willing to do whatever needed to be done for the group.  In the fall of 2017, the group had a fund raiser to have a song commissioned in honor/memory of Gary. I was overwhelmed to say the least.  Craig Courtney was the elected composer and he re-arranged the “The Our Father” for him. I listened to the music and was moved beyond tears. Each of my children had a similar reaction. This song, indeed represents Gary who IS “our father” who Is in heaven with Our Father.

It’s such an honor and thrill to sing our national anthem at a Tigers game each summer.
