Son Jon sent these pictures that were taken this morning back in Vienna, Virginia. It is apparent that Jon is enjoying himself playing his Mandolin and talking to people. We had no idea when he got his first little ukelele that music would become such a continuing source of pleasure in his life. But music is like that. Music has a “magic” way of communicating. Our Kitone group sings at care facilities occasionally. Recently at an Alzheimer's unit while one of our group whistled and sang an old love song, a patient whom I was near and hadn't spoken any words for some time, sang along with every word. Though Jon sang with us in the Kitones when they lived in Seward some years ago, our best times singing together was when he was a Senior in HS, the other kids were off to college and Country Music was popular. I wish I could have been there to sing with him this morning but I doubt I would have known the words.
