I asked Mr. May what he remembered most about Sinatra and he told me that he was incredibly good at his stand up concerts. He had this way of capturing his audience and bringing them into his surroundings. As we sat talking about this experience, I asked Mr. May if he remembered one of the songs that Sinatra sang that day, and it was at this point that Mr. May sang, "I Get a Kick Out of You"! Now let me describe this to you. Mr. May because of his health, has a very soft and sometimes strained voice. As he sang to me in this precious soft voice, I felt so honored!
He sat there so bright eyed and excited to sing for me and Devon, and it melted my heart into mush!
One thing I am personally learning is that Memories can do one of two things. They can either become more precious over time, or if they are bad ones, and if you let them, they can destroy you and lead you into a dark and depressed state. I am so glad that Mr. May has memories that allow him to keep his incredible smile living so graciously on his face. When I talk to him, his heart is filled with joy and peace! I have never left his room and felt depressed or sad. Instead, when I leave, my heart is floating on the clouds full of peace and love! I am so blessed that God has given me the honor of writing you all about this sweet, incredible man. May God bless you all!!
