Musical Notes with Melissa: We’ll Meet Again

Melissa Pate

“We’ll meet again, don’t know where, don’t know when, but I’m sure we’ll meet again some sunny day.”

Dear Residents, Families, and Friends,

As my time at Kensington Park comes to a end, the overwhelming feeling I experience is gratitude. The last five years here have been more than I could have ever hoped for or imagined, and a big part of that is because of you.

To the residents: Thank you for allowing me to bring music into your life in a meaningful way. Whether I saw you individually or in a group or choir, it has been a joy to see you flourish. The relationships I have with each of you is so precious to me, and I am thankful for every song we have sung together.

To the families: Thank you for entrusting your loved one to me through music therapy. I am thankful for your openness and curiosity in learning more, and for your excitement to get your loved ones involved. I will always be grateful that I was able to serve your loved one in this special way and to make this era of their lives even sweeter.

To the staff: None of this would be possible without you, as it is truly a team effort. Thank you for your help, care, and advocacy for music therapy. I am forever grateful.

I am so excited to see how the music therapy program will flourish under Julia’s guidance. She is incredibly knowledgeable, talented, kind, and caring, and I trust that this program is left in good hands. I will miss you all dearly!

Moving forward if you are interested in learning about music therapy for your loved one, or groups please contact Julia McCarren at JMcCarren@kensingtonsl.com.
