Wetterling's favorite song performed at memorial service

Share story

At the memorial service for Jacob Wetterling Sunday in St. Joseph, Minn., Jacob's sister Carmen, who was 8 years old at the time, told a story about a family road trip just a few weeks before Jacob disappeared. 

On that trip the Wetterlings saw a performance by musician Red Grammer and listened to his music over and over again on the seven-hour ride home. She said Jacob would grab her foot, pretending it was a microphone, and sing along. 

Grammer was at Sunday's service and performed Jacob's favorite song "Listen."
