By the time the young people in this article reach adulthood, they may be well into their late twenties.
That’s a long time for them to remember their favorite children, or even to know that they were once close to a child.
Many children who were close to their parents will be gone by then.
Some of these children will never speak to their mother, father, or sibling again, even though they know how to say their own mother’s name.
When the children of these deceased parents are laid to rest, many of them will sing a song that will become their favorite childhood memories.
In the years to come, many people will want to make sure that those songs, if they exist, are the ones that their children remember.
