"Just a Closer Walk with Thee"

African - American Spiritual

arr. Karlene M. Francis

This gospel song is an all-around favorite, especially with many of the people I support in palliative care. I'm playing on my old, faithful keyboard who has definitely seen better days...Lol.


It was a great find after college, at the Long & McQuade in Toronto's yearly inventory blowout sale and when I finally finished the payments after many months, it felt soooo good.

The model is discontinued and although some of the keys may clack, the pedal may squeak now and then, she's still makes music and for that, I'm very grateful.
