Wow! That is powerful and must have
been difficult to experience the
production of it. Very touching and
an amazing vid.
Rest in peace.

Fred,

This is truly lovely.

The performance and production and mix are excellent.
But, much like Tom's song (Who I Once Was), the message here is so very much more important that talking about that other stuff.. seems so very unimportant, insignificant.

A wonderful, wonderful tribute - filled with love.

You brought a tear to my eye.
That has to be a hard thing to share. But I'm glad you did.

Truly lovely.

floyd

Lovely, Meditative, melancholy, vivid (I did not watch the video).

Wonderfully mixed with depth of sound and mood.

much enjoyed!

Josie, Gofby, Greg, Janice, Bud, Tom, Rec, Floyd, Gruverider, Slava, Herb, Trevor, Charlie, Robert, Richard,Guenter, Rob, Anne Marie and Josie,

You are all lovely people!
This forum has some fine musicians, composers. But what makes it really special is the emphatic abilities of you all!
You go above and beyond your role as audience, musician, sounding board. I thank you all for your kind comments.

Yes, I had a hard time writing this song and putting together this video, but I felt it had to be done, especially to those left behind.

Thank you all, moving on!

Fred
