So they should have let him finish the song... #justsaying. The man's wife died so let him do the last thing that she wanted to the fullest. It was beautiful.

What I think he means is that there is a difference from sympathy and empathy. He did not want them to feel sorry for him because his wife died. What he wanted was empathy where they feel what he is feeling and just wanted to be heard and someone to listen to him

Exactly… It’s like leaving church before benediction

I remember this song from my childhood. They should had let him finish it. What a beautiful gesture from him. God bless you, Sir.

Their should not be an age limit.Talent knows no boundaries.

I think they ought to bring him back with music, a tuxedo and give a true farewell to his beloved in style, not herded through like a cattle pen. We need to honor one another to hell with the sensationalism of the day. One day we will realize what is of true value on our own bed of pain and I don't think we'll want to look at our bank account one more time before we leave, View our trophies but I imagine we'll want to say goodbye to our families.

What does he mean when he said he did`nt want sympathy?

  • 2013-02-13T23:03:03

I thought the same thing . . ..

You picked up on that too? They cut him off before he was finished. Shame! Everyone should have a love like that but, alas, the concept of a soul mate belongs on Middle Earth with Frodo and Bilbo.

This is true love. We should all be so fortunate.

AAAwww so sweet!

Talk about LOVING somebody, His special song and thoughts so strong, how could you not cry, man, I wanted to HUG him too.

They should have let him finish his song. I think it is shameful that he was not allowed to finish.
