It is in the simple things in life that we can see the love we have had in our lives. The Ribbon in the Sky is a love story that embraces the thought that loving someone through a long period conjures the colors of the world in how you remember that love. Take the journey from the beginning of a love that starts at childhood and grows to something more beautiful in life. In this short, one man show, a man takes you through the love he had with his wife, and turns a simple vision of God, into a story of true love that will last forever.
