    What a powerful moment. Hopefully those tears will give way to joyful smiles in due time.
    More an appreciator of the ukulele than a true player. My motto is: "Don't matter how good it ring if it ain't got some bling."

    After playing uke for kids in UCLA/Mattel hospital musical therapy program, I see how valuable patients playing music can be. Your experience is just more proof of how important music is.

    Cyber, thank you for sharing this with us. We appreciate it. I'm so glad your Uke was able to unlock the door to those lost memories in a way nothing else could. They might be small but they have a magic touch on our lives.

    Hey Booli, thank for the link. Good and heart warming to read the stories. Still a bit raw from my revelations. Can only play sad melodies for now. But, that's the process for me. cheers.

    Default Thanks everyone. This is a special group for sure.

    Wouldn't have posted that anywhere else! I was right, uke players are the best.
