Magical Moment #27

My friend, Mark, took his mother to a barbershop concert in Portland, Ore. She loved the music so much and looked forward to the next concert. Sadly, she passed away a few weeks later. Mark decided to have a quartet sing over her grave every year on Valentine's Day.

I received a call from Deanna Connel, at Channel 2, asking if I was aware of a special Valentine event she could highlight on that day. I told her of Mark's request. She sent a staff member of Channel 2, with a cameraman, to the cemetery to record this unique quartet remembrance and interviewed Mark and his 14 year-old daughter. It went viral on local TV before there was viral.

A barbershopper, waiting for a flight in LA, saw it on the monitor. Who knows where else this special Valentine gift may have been seen around our nation? What a magical moment for all to enjoy!
