Take a Bow, Say Goodbye

Just as I did ten years ago when I performed this tribute, I've decided to overcome my critical self-consciousness and share this video:

This made me cry.

You are so beautiful and awesome--as is your love for your mom and dad.

Your exquisite sense of rhythm and your natural sense of grace shine brightly in this video.

Brava!

You are amazing, Rae Ann! I really hope you find the time to keep skating - you have a talent, girl! I also loved watching your dad's performance, I guess grace runs in your family. Thank you for sharing these family tributes with all of us.

Wow....just looked at that and your dad's video. Two very powerful tributes. I had no idea you had this "hidden" talent!

Been away a while - sorry to hear about your dad's passing. Hope you're well.

ellen, thank you so much! You always make me feel better.

ellipsis, thanks! No I haven't skated since 1998. But now I'm seriously thinking of doing it again. My daughter especially wants to do it too.

Ann, thanks! I'm so glad that I had my dad's performance on video. My mom skated a little too, and my sister also. It was a good way for all of us to spend time together growing up.

Mr. G, thanks, I hope you're doing okay! Yeah, life has been pretty hard over the last half year or so but I'm doing alright. Glad to see you around!
