Music Mama: In Memory of “Baby”


The list you see below is the very first playlist contributed by our Music Mama, Jackie Helton. It’s a great list of songs to play for any mom-to-be, for a baby shower, or even for the delivery room. We’re reprinting it today in memory of Jackie’s sweet four-legged child — who was named “Baby” — who passed away last week.

Jackie and her husband Larry had Baby for 13 years, and she was such a sweet, loving dog. Her health had deteriorated during the past several months, until finally Jackie and Larry had to make that hard decision to have her put to sleep so she wouldn’t continue to endure pain. We know many of you have had to make similar decisions or have experienced the grief of losing a pet. You can tell us about your sweet pet by clicking on the word “comment” below.
