This song was originally written for my mother, who was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer this past year. On that, I got on a plane with a one way ticket and flew home to take care of her. On getting there I realized that she was fine and in good health. I got back on a plane and only weeks later was informed that my eldest brother had passed away from a heart attack. Once again, I got back on a plane to attend the funeral. When it came time to sing at the funeral, my song seemed to be the most fitting song for the memorial by the lyrics and the history of it.
It has a special place in my heart and I have a hard time singing it now without getting upset. For my dear brother Earl. Rest in peace Meathead.
