(This episode was recorded pre-Covid19.)

Kirsten's mom, Sandy, who has early onset dementia, heads to Utah to live at Kirsten's house. As Sandy begins her decline to death, Kirsten's sisters come to say their farewells. A kind neighbor offers to play the harp while the family sits near. 

While sitting in the room listening to the music, it appears that Kirsten's bed-bound mom is at a cocktail party with angels, laughing and appearing to shake hands with people above her bed. Sandy can no longer speak full words, but her inflections and intonations sound like she's happy. Suddenly Sandy, turns to look at one of Kirsten's sisters, and she asks an important question, in perfect English. 

Kirsten pairs this story with a fabulous Prosecco from Italy. Tune in to hear why this white, bubbly wine is the perfect one for the miraculous question.
