Thanks, Red

Terry Teachout wrote about music that helped him during difficult times. This brought to mind last spring, when my sister-in-law died, and I flew home from Alabama after the funeral and began listening, over and over, to "Just A Closer Walk With Thee" by Red Foley and the Jordanaires. The song comforted me a lot. I'm not particularly religious, but Foley's singing is very gentle and reassuring, and the song reminded me of Adrienne's faith, about which she talked a lot as her illness ran its course.
