Nat King Cole sings “Nature Boy”

“Nature Boy”

There was a boy
A very strange enchanted boy
They say he wandered very far
Very far, over land and sea
A little shy and sad of eye
But very wise was he
And then one day, a magic day
He passed my way, and while we spoke
Of many things, fools and kings
This he said to me
“The greatest thing you’ll ever learn
Is just to love and be loved in return”
“The greatest thing you’ll ever learn
Is just to love and be loved in return”

— songwriters Ahbez, Eden

  2. Sorry, I made the above comment and forgot to fill in my name.

    1. Thank you for coming to my son’s website and learning about him.

  3. Listening to Nat King Cole singing made me cry. I didn’t get to know August after he was a baby, and didn’t know him as he grew up, and I am sad about that.

    1. Christine, he would have loved you.

  4. Dr. Gabbard,

    I found your site a few days ago and have been exploring it. My condolences to you and your family on the loss of August.

    I have athetoid CP with spastic quadriplegia. I consider myself lucky in that I can walk, speak, and live on my own with assistance as an adult.

    Thank you for sharing August’s story.

    1. Hi, Stephanie, I am glad you found the site. Where do you live?

        I live in Houston. Last year, I self-published a memoir entitled “Keeping My Balance…” I’m not trying to sell you a book! Your site captured my interest, though, because of your fine writing and disability topics.

        1. Thanks for writing. I will look for “Keeping My Balance.”

    2. Thank you for writing. August also lived with spastic quadriplegia, but he also had other, severe impairments. I see you have a website, and I am going to go take a look at it now. All best! Chris Gabbard
