Playing Piano

Father's passing started me to play for the first time, and for the last time. I didn't play for the first time for my dad, but I played for him for the last time in recorded audio for his peaceful rest. I wanted to play for my mother, neither the first time nor the last time, because I wanted to tell her 'thanks for getting me to learn piano at a young age'. I know she wouldn't want to listen to me playing the piano for her, but, saying 'thank you' to her would give me the goosebumps uncontrollably. I wonder if she would like a genuine thank you with the heart from me.
