He played the violin beautifully and from what my grandmother told me, one of his favorite pieces was 'Plaisir d'Amour'....Of course it became one of my favorites. I love the haunting notes, it just makes me want to sing it......Until recently I had no idea that he was also a painter and artist. I have two photos that my cousin sent to me and it shows one of his paintings still in need of framing. And another one finished and framed.
