About the Song

For my Mom – My rock – I wrote it the day after she died. I was sitting alone in our bedroom, and Marissa came in and gave me a picture she drew to make me feel better. That’s when I wrote “Always there for me” on the back of Marissa’s picture. I sang it the next day at Mom’s funeral. By the way Marissa is my beautiful daughter, what an angel. I have written songs about Marissa, but have not recorded yet. I hope to do that real soon.
