This is a song my buddy Chris and I wrote a number of years back for All Saints Day at church, where we look back at the lives of those who not only have gone before us, but also upon whose giant shoulders we now stand.

So, I would like to dedicate this to the memory of Ray Thigpen, who for many of us on the forum was a mentor and friend. Rest in peace, Ray!

You're My Sanctuary

This rendition of the song was created with both Band-In-A-Box and RealBand and is all RealTracks and RealDrums. Vocals need work, but they are mine (both melody and harmony).

John, this is a beautiful song. I know that Ray would appreciate. I wish Paule could hear it. She does not do computers. Maybe someone will show her how to get on the internet. occ
