Mark Schultz's family lives in the KC area. Several years ago when he was famous but not quite as much as now we get to see a semi private concert on New Years Eve. He sang more than normal as his family was there, and although it was a large audience it was still intimate; plus it helped that I was on the front row! Mark was killing time to get to midnight so he sang parts of this song. It was still in the 'writing stages'. He got the idea from his grandparents. His grandmother saved all the letters from his grandfather. It really touched me!
That is a very touching song and video. Thanks for sharing it.
