Rest Easy Jo

I grew to love Jo Stafford as a girl.  My mother would play You Belong To Me and we'd dance.  She taught me how to dance, with that song.  

I loved the melody and the way Ms. Stafford gave the notes their life.

She died a few days ago, having lived a wondrous ninety years.

Thank you Ms. Stafford.  Your voice will be remembered.
