“Music is well said to be the speech of angels.” ~Thomas Carlyle
The Sound of Music, Taylor’s favorite movie, is on TV tonight, and the Taylor’s Tale Facebook page received the following note from one of my sister’s angels:
This message is for Taylor!
Tayyy! I’m watching Sound of Music and can’t help but think of you and the times we sang Do Re Me! I hope you are singing it in your heart right now!
Miss you and love you!
I remember a time when Taylor sang every note with Maria. But while the governess’ voice will forever grace the WWII-era Austrian countryside, my sister’s singing voice has gone silent.
Batten disease is ruthless, but it can’t touch what’s in our hearts. And in her heart, Taylor is always singing.
