Lonely, by Tami Neilson

As a tribute to her father, Tami Neilson released this song today:

Tami Neilson’s, Lonely

Please take a moment to watch this beautiful woman sing to recognize the loss her mother suffered when her father passed away this past year.

Tami was my youngest son’s nanny.  I had no idea she could sing.  Imagine my surprise when I came home to hear her strumming her guitar and singing to David.

I said, “Tami, you have a beautiful voice.  You should do something with it!”

Little did I know that she was already very, very much on her way and had been as a member of the Neilson Family Singers from 100 Huntley Street.  Her family was a very close and talented musical family.  Together – they entertained thousands.

Tami grew up (as you can see to be stunning!!!!) and married a fellow from New Zealand where she and he settled down and had a family.

Tragically – she lost her father last year and her mom was left without her singing partner, life-long friend, and soul-mate.  This song was released today in honour of her Mum and Dad and their love.  It is beautiful.

Warning:  you may shed a tear or two… maybe three.

You will never be the same!

This blog began as an opportunity to tell my Dad's stories. I sat with him and the computer and together we told stories. It was a wonderful way to get to know Dad. He was 9. He and Mom had a wonderful life together and since she passed away a year and a half before him - Dad was ready to join her. I no longer tell his stories but have found stories of my own. The impetus to resume this blog was the discovery that I had stage 4 ovarian cancer. Since blogging had been so therapeutic for my dad and I to get through our grief, I felt maybe this would be a good outlet to process my situation. I also hoped it may serve as an outreach to anyone else who is facing this very ominous journey. So far, so good.

    A lovely woman, and a very touching song…that speaks for many who are missing the presence of someone dear.
    Thanks for sharing, Stacey.
