URGENT PLEA: Following Paul's latest health scare, my two youngest children in California are desperately trying
to find a way to get home to see their father one last time before it grows too late.

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
Nat King Cole keeps singing this old song to me.
BONUS - A Blossom Fell - Nat King Cole
"A Blossom Fell" is a popular song.
It was written by Howard Barnes, Harold Cornelius, and Dominic John and published in 1954.
The best-known version was recorded by Nat King Cole. The recording was released by Capitol Records as catalog number 3095. The B-side was "If I May." The record first reached the Billboard magazine charts on April 27, 1955 and lasted 20 weeks on the chart, peaking at #2. (Note that in this era, Billboard combined data for both sides of two-sided hits, so the #2 status applies to the combination of "A Blossom Fell" and "If I May").
