When I was 16 years old my Grandmother passed away. She had requested that all her grandchildren sing this song, God Be with You Till We Meet Again, at her funeral. It was a hard song to sing then and every time since that I've sung it I can still feel that feeling of sadness and loss. I've been wanting to write an arrangement of this song for her for a long time.
It was a hard arrangement to write at first because it made me think of her, and the other loved ones I've lost since then. But the more I played it the more peace it brought me. I thought of my Grandmother singing it to me, praying that God will be with me until I see her again, knowing that I will need His presence in my life to get to where she is and to be with her again.
I'm so grateful for the knowledge I have that we will be together as families forever. Although the temporary separation is so hard when a loved one leaves this life, it is only temporary and we will see them again.
