The Life Stories Collection (Series)

Produced by Jay Allison

Most recent piece in this series:

Dad and Sam (Locked in Brotherhood)

From Jay Allison | Part of the The Life Stories Collection series | 04:43

Dadsmall_small This piece comes from the Life Stories Collection ("Fathers and Sons" hour). I have broken it out because it would work well by itself around either Christmas or Father's Day. The setting is a Christmas table. The story is about my father and his love for his brother Sam, in the face of Sam's mental disability. The love and connection continues past death. Sam was a singer and we hear him sing Oh Holy Night and Silent Night in this piece. The piece was produced in th 1980s sometime, but I think it holds up okay.
