For Dad and Mom

If this isn't the most beautiful piece of music ever written, I don't know what is.

Astonishingly, I never would have heard this, except I went to a concert with them a few months ago.  Married these 56 years, Dad is Tristan to Mom's Isolde, and an inspiration on how to live a life that means something.

If I can just make one (hesitant) correction to Herr Wagner, this isn't the liebestod - the Love's Death.  It didn't, and won't die.  We're still listening to it.
