Kisses From Heaven

This song was written by attempting to imagine her perspective when she came to realize that her time on Earth would be cut short. No words could even come close to describing what a joy she was to all of us or how deeply the pain of her leaving us hurts. Mary knew Jesus and we will see her again, but for now we will be looking for her kisses from heaven.

The Man I Want To Be

I loved my grandpa more than anything growing up. He never judged me and his life was a real struggle. His mom died when he was a boy and his father left the family. He was split up from his brothers for the rest of his life. He suffered through the great depression with his grandma. He knew hunger and pain. He was a true Marine.
