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.
