How Can I Help You Say Goodbye

Lyrics

Through the back window of our '59 wagon
I watched my best friend Jamie slipping further away
I kept on waving till I couldn't see her
And through my tears I asked again why we couldn't stay

This song is a reminder of what I would like to say to my daughter since the loss of my granddaughte r . Unfortunatel y I have not heard from her since my granddaughte r went home to be with the Lord.

Almost 6 years since I lost my mom & this song always makes me cry. As it also helps because it's like she's right here with me telling me it's ok. Never fails always comes on when I need it the most

I lost my mother 4 years ago, and just a few days after I was listening to the radio and How Can I Help You Say Goodbye came on and all I could do was cry. But for some reason it helped me to know it was okay to say goodbye. I still cry every time I hear it. I feels like moma talking tome still it is so much like what she would say if she was still here with me. I miss her everyday.

This song reminds me that we should appreciate the time we have and that we all are very much alike and feel the same emotions and love is the only thing that we can take with us.

I've kind of dreaded the day I would hear this song since my dad died and it's been a year and a half since he's been gone and feels like yesterday. Good song.

For our present time, one of the most demanding emotional levels of any song of our day. It's production value,flawle s s . . . . T h a n k you Patty Loveless. No need to try and "cover" that one.
