(Sacramento Bee) As 63-year-old Margaret Smith lay dying in Vanderbilt University Medical Center, nurse Olivia Neufelder tried to make some of her last moments on Earth as tranquil as possible.
Neufelder, who has been friends with Margaret for 15 years, sang “Dancing in the Sky” by Dani and Lizzie to the ailing woman confined to a hospital bed, according to WLOS.
Smith would later be moved from the Tennessee hospital to a nearby nursing home, where she died Wednesday, NewsChannel5 reported. She had been waiting for a liver transplant, which doctors said she wasn’t healthy enough to receive.

But before that, Neufelder wanted to share a few more minutes — and the calming power of music — with her old friend.
