Bill's Conversational Musings

My Father's Soundtrack


My father passed away last month. One of the hardest tasks I have ever had to do was come up with a soundtrack for his life. How does one do that? How do you go about finding music that describes another person? (Tip to those reading this: Put a track list of music you want played in your will. Your family will thank you for it.)
