This is a companion mixtape to "My Dad". This one is all about loss, coming to grips with losing someone or something you love. I am dealing with the death of a parent, but relationships end in many ways, lovers part, or maybe beliefs that were once held are shattered. Here is a mix of music which deals with some of the many ways in which loss can creep up on us...

Track 6 from Prarie Wind
Length: 00:07:35
Year: 2005
Track Description:
"Trying to remember what Daddy said, before too much time took away his head." When someone gets dementia, those who love them feel the loss of that person as the essence of that person drifts off into the wind, but then when they eventually do die, the loss kicks in all over again. Two for the price of one.

Track Description:
"I dont know what happens when people die, Cant seem to grasp it as hard as I try, Its like a song I can hear playing right in my ear
That I cant sing, I cant help listening" One of the things about coming to terms with loss is the 'trying to make sense of it all' phase, quickly followed by the realization that there is no sense to be found sometim4es.

"Thank you for the days, Those endless days, those sacred days you gave me." This had to be the last song on the tape. There is no rule that celebration can't be part of loss. Thank you Ray, and of course, thank you Dad.

I won't forget a single day, believe me.
