My Mom, Theresa Yori, passed away December 28, 2012. We buried her after New Year this year. Today is her birthday. October 28th...It would have been her 85th birthday.."Misty" was her favorite song. She could belt this song out just as well as any professional singer. She had such a beautiful deep vibrant voice. I vividly remember hearing Mom sing that song all during my childhood. After she died, we found an audio tape with her on it. It was taped during a New Year's Party with her family. She was singing it. It was so beautiful.
After we discovered it, Dad kept listening to it over and over again. At one point, he called me upset because he inadvertently recorded over part of it. I knew I should have taped over the record button so he couldn't do that. But at any rate, maybe Mom just wanted to keep that song private for her and Dad. Who can blame her?
Mom, I know we didn't always see eye to eye on things and our relationship was always rocky but today I'm misty for you. I hope you are singing this to Dad today on the otherside. I know he really missed hearing you sing it and he would have preferred to have you sing it to him in person and now that is possible ...... Happy Birthday Mom.
