Keep Singing


This is a Finding Words story!

I have aphasia because I had a stroke. Betsy is my wife and she is nice. I love her. I have always loved to sing and I keep singing. There are some thing that a stroke just can’t take. Many years ago, the stoke did effect my voice, but I found it through speech therapy and I’m singing again. I use my voice to express. I use a song to refer to a topic. Music and songs are a shared language when the words just don’t come.

    Paul is an inspiration. And his wife Betsy is a wonderful caregiver. It is special when you meet people who radiate love – even without words!

    Paul: I’m puzzled that I didn’t see this posting earlier! But I’m delighted that you regained your singing voice. And I know your speech had returned because we saw each other last year. It’s great to see your messages, so please keep going. All the best. Steve
