    Care for each other
    Be faithful till the end

    My son and I danced to: The Wind Beneath my Wings. I’ve been a widow since my son was 4 years old and he has always been # 1 in my life. He was the one who selected this song,

    “Did you ever know that you’re my hero,

    and everything I would like to be?

    I can fly higher than an eagle,

    ’cause you are the wind beneath my wings.”
    Can you imagine how I excited and thrilled I was.

      I’ve only just seen this comment – sorry for the huge delay! That’s so beautiful, I’ve no doubt that was an incredibly special and emotional moment for you both. You must be filled with pride. Your son is obviously a lucky man to have you in his life too. Thank you for sharing your story with us.

    My son & I danced at his wedding to Rascal Flatt’s “My Wish”. I memorized the words & sang to my baby boy one last time. It still brings tears to my eyes to watch the video.

    I’m getting married in a few months and can’t find songs to dance with my sons to. Any suggestions?

    • Jan

      Hi Nancy,
      I have chosen Close to You by Karen Carpenter. It is perfect for my youngest son whose wedding is May 9th. I need another song for my eldest son’s wedding July 4th! My hubby and I want to dance to our newest favorite, One love by the Carpenters but cannot find it.. suggestions?

  • WandaZZ

    I used the song My Boy, and it is really the perfect song!
