Soldier Boy--Watch Don Conoscenti playing his song, "The Other Side".
Google "Don Conoscenti The Other Side", specifically on You Tube. This is a GREAT song for bereavement. Don Con has played it here in La Veta, CO twice following the deaths of valued community members. Our band, D&A, just played it a few weeks ago at a memorial service for a dear friend, Ray Reynolds who passed away suddenly. Judging from comments from his widow, Robin, and numerous family members from out of state, this song was a highlight of the memorial to Ray Reynolds.

Have a listen, I think you will be glad you did. BTW, I share your sorrow, with the passing of both of my parents.

The Other Side - Live
from Extremely Live At Eddies Attic - Cogtone 013 - 2002


i'm over on the other side
where life and death softly divide.
left my skin and bones behind
now i'm over on the other side.

can you feel me there with you?
my breath is gone but i'm not through.
loved you then and i still do
from over on the other side.

i can fly. really fly.
below the earth ... all through the sky.
tell em all i did not die.
i'm just over on the other side.

it's good here on the other side.
the sweetest songs...the bluest skies.
thank you for the tears you cried
but it's good here on the other side.

i can fly. really fly.
below the earth...all through the sky.
tell em all i did not die.
i'm just over on the other side

the world is smaller than a needle's eye.
where life and death softly divide.
when you leave your skin and bones behind
i'll be waiting on the other side.

i can fly. really fly.
below the earth ... all through the sky.
go tell em all i did not die.
i'm just over on the other side.
