Beautiful and classy, Kay. Gotta love your Auntie B for that lasting memory, which will not leave my head any time soon. Thank you for the lift you gave to this platform and this publication. Your support and encouragement have meant a lot to me.

Glad you pegged this piece to a famous Sinatra hit. It gives me a chance to say farewell (but only for now) with another from Old Blue Eyes. His version of "The Best is Yet to Come" with Count Basie and his orchestra.

Ciao, Kay!
