Irvington music teacher uses the gift of song to heal pain of losing uncle on 9/11
A Yonkers woman uses music as a way to help heal the wounds of 9/11.
Tara Coloia-Mocah, an Irvington music teacher who lives in Yonkers, lost her 42-year-old uncle, Dennis, in the attack on the World Trade Center. She says her family misses his caring, his smile, his constant encouragement and funny ways. She says family gatherings have been extremely difficult.
To help deal with the tragic loss of her uncle, she has written a song and created a scrapbook. Coloia-Mocah says the context of the song is about how Dennis was chosen by God.
"There is not a day that goes by that I don't think of him," says Coloia-Mocah.
