This song is about my (Anne-Marie's) sister who died recently.
Although her cancer was cured she suffered from some terrible side effects. She decided not to go on. Although understandable her decision came as a shock to us all.
Composing this song for her, helped accepting it.

First I am so sorry for your loss - such a hard thing to face.

The song and video are both absolutely beautiful. So moving.

Well done.

WOW what a great tribute!

I really liked your arrangement, vocals, and especially the lyrics. I was drawn in right from the start!

Rob and Anne-Marie,

So very sorry to hear of your loss. This song is a beautiful as I'm sure she was. People pass on but what they leave behind lives on and it's obvious she left a lot of warmth and love behind. A simply gorgeous song that further embellishes the time you had with her and the precious memories she scattered about. Beautifully done!

Alan & Di

Wow... cool tune on a difficult subject.

I have 2 songs on my site that were inspired by folks who had cancer... one is recovered and the other passed on.

It's probably the hardest kind of song to write. But as you pointed out, it can be cathartic.

Thanks Herb,
Yes it can be cathartic.
We already listened to some songs on your website, which two songs are you referring to?

Wow, where to start? My condolences on your loss. Your production here is so good, everything stands out like you were in my living room performing live. I love that you went with such a simple arrangement. Just so well done. And I'm a big fan of your videos and this one is no exception. Marianne's photo at the end is beautiful and haunting with the music you have written for her.

#TBT Band-in-a-Box Finds!

I don't know about everyone here, but now that I've settled in to our "new normal" I've taken to rearranging and dusting off many things in order to keep busy and productive!

I'm picking up old hobbies, picking up clutter around the house, and as it turns out - finding forgotten picks!

We snagged these gems many, many, many years ago after The NAMM Show one winter. Check out the old Band-in-a-Box logo! Click here...

Have any of you come across something nostalgic like this these days? Let's see it!
(remember the first Audiophile version?!)
