Crowded House

Not referring to Anne-Marie and Aurora's visit... oh God, how I love having my family here!... but to the band seen at the Greek Theatre, strategically placed a stone's throw from Reuben's hospital on Sunset Blvd. "Live music under the stars in the heart of LA".

My lullaby to Reuben through frequent tears is Distant Sun, the words so exceptionally poignant. http://reubenjackdodd.blogspot.com/2007/07/distant-sun-reubens-song.html
We couldn't have sung his song with more gusto and passion!

If God could have given Reuben the ability to hear through advances in medicine, the dulcet tones would have sailed over the foothills of Mount Hollywood and filtered gently through his ears. It pains us, this eternal pause button before his return home and yet his spirit is always with us. We feel him so close in everything we do - with a great tinge of sadness - without him.
