This was the best thread for this. although it's more touching than sad. Just something that touches one's heartstrings in a bittersweet way.
 
My sister who lost her husband (they were both filmmakers) 2 months ago wrote, at the end of her email to me today:

 
well, gotta get back to work; I'm editing a short piece on (her husband's name) at the 1993 Yamagata Film Festival (Japan) for an upcoming film festival in Honolulu.
 
it's such a joy to be with him every day, if only on the editing monitor.

My mother had dementia/Alz as well. She played piano beautifully and one day after years of being lost inside her mind she played a song on a piano at the nursing home. She also had times were she would recite the words of a song. She too seemed to forget about it as soon as it was over.

 
 
Often when I call my mom, I start singing a song that was familiar (and loved) from her lifetime, and she'll finish it with me.
 
I love that about music/songs.

I have "Alive Inside" - the documentary about that in my Netflix list—but so far, I've been saving it for when I'm absolutely ready to cry my eyes out (since it hits so close to home right now).

Y'know, I was wondering about him the other day. I don't think I'd heard about any illness. Interesting that that article, and another one on the same site, mention his struggle but never say why. Stroke, 2013, for anyone else wondering. I'm sure I heard about it at the time but forgot.

Which is just about every time I peek into the RAFT. Despite what SFW says. (He is luckier than me when it comes to peeking in and NOT seeing them) in the top 6.

That they rise?  This is an election year.

Content quality and lack of comity and good humor is another matter.
