Dying Soldier Sings “Tell My Father” With His Son

Lt. Col. Mark Weber of the Minnesota National Guard was the kind of person who could inspire others without even trying. When he was diagnosed with gastrointestinal cancer, his family was devastated to learn that he had only a few months left to live. The way he handled the situation gained him the admiration and love of millions of people all over the world.

In the video below, Weber sings “Tell My Father”, a Civil War era song, with his eldest son at the Minnesota History Center in Saint Paul in June 14, 2012. Sadly, Weber lost his battle with cancer in June 2013 at the age 41. The song they sing together is enough to tear you up, but the ending will really get to you. What a beautiful moment!
