Emotional Moment When Young Man With Down Syndrome Plays Saxophone At His Grandpa’s Funeral

Music is a universal language. We play music for relaxation, inspiration, celebration, and even mourning.

Music is a shared experience that bridges generations and abilities. Matt Lomaka, a young man with down syndrome, loves to play the saxophone. He shared his love of music with his grandfather, “G.”

So, it fits at his grandfather’s funeral that Matt played at G’s graveside. The sweet video of him performing show’s Matt’s passion for both his mentor and music.

The sounds of family and friends joining in singing the lyrics to “Here I Am, Lord” by Dan Schutte, is a testament to the power music to unite.

“Here I am, Lord. Is it I, Lord?
I have heard you calling in the night
I will go, Lord, if you lead me
I will hold your people in my heart.”

This beautiful hymn, based on the Samuel story (1 Samuel 3) reminds the believer that God calls out to the smallest, most unlikely of people and does amazing things in and through them.

Social media response to this sweet video expresses the depth of love Matt has for his grandfather. Though we don’t need to read others’ comments to see the love, Matt expresses here.

Saying goodbye – for now- is difficult, but tender moments like this make it a sweet sorrow and reminds us that joy comes in the morning.
