My niece's husband dedicated the song, "  Hero" by Mariah Carey, to his mother for their mother and son dance at his wedding. Her husband's father had passed away when he was just a small boy and his mother raised him and his brother by herself. I thought it was very touching and appropriate. "And then a hero comes along, with the strength to carry on. And you cast your fears aside and you know you can survive. So when you feel like hope is gone. Look inside you and be strong. And you'll finally see the truth. That a hero lies in you". What a wonderful dedication to his mother.
