The Music of Life and Death

There is so much power in music. I sang to my Mom-in-law during those last days and it was really special experience for me. I was not there when my grandmother Teodora died in the arms of her sister, but I did share most of my grandmother Maria Magdalena’s last hour of life on earth. I did not sing to her. There was a patient in the bed next to her and I thought it might disturb her, so instead I put headphones over her ears and played Mozart adagios.
