For anyone who has lost a loved one, this song will hit home. 

Tammy Cochran was still a young girl when she lost her two older brothers to Cystic Fibrosis. Shawn died from the disease in 1980 at just 15-years old, and Alan died in 1991 at 24. The genetic disease prevented Shawn and Alan from living out the lives they dreamed of. As their sister, Cochran has dedicated her life and the song, "Angels In Waiting" to fulfilling a promise she once made.

In the video she discusses a conversation she once had with her brother Alan. He asked his little sister to do one thing for him. Cochran remembers when Alan said to her, "I'm not going to be here very long, but if you can live enough for both of us that would be enough".

She had the idea for "Angels In Waiting" for a year, but could never get through the writing on her own. Finally she teamed up with songwriters, Jim McBride and Stewart Harris to write the emotional song. The single was released on her self-titled debut album in 2001 and became a top 10 hit on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart. 

Cochran's tribute to her brothers is filled with photos and home movies of fond family memories. She describes her brothers as her "biggest fans and greatest heroes". They are now her "Angels In Waiting" and her inspiration. Watch the touching music video below.  

LYRICS BELOW 

We camped out on the living room floor
In our old sleeping bags by a make-believe fire
In a tent made of covers, we'd talked for hours
My two brothers and me
Keeping the faith, racing with destiny

They were angels in waiting
Waiting for wings to fly from this world away from their pain
Treasuring time, 'til time came to leave
Leaving behind sweet memories
Angels in waiting, angels in waiting for wings

They always knew they'd never grow old
Sometimes the body is weaker than the soul
In their darkest hour, I made a promise
I will always keep
I'll give them life, I'll let them live through me

They were angels in waiting
Waiting for wings to fly from this world away from their pain
Treasuring time, 'til time came to leave
Leaving behind sweet memories
Angels in waiting, angels in waiting for wings

They were angels in waiting
Waiting for wings to fly from this world away from their pain
Treasuring time, 'til time came to leave
Leaving behind sweet memories
Angels in waiting, angels in waiting for wings
Angels in waiting, angels in waiting for me
