Epitaph

Tina's Sunflowers at Sunset

A haunting tribute from the creative minds of film composer Edwin Wendler and Vocalist Aeralie Brighton.

Carve your name on hearts, not tombstones. A legacy is etched into the minds of others and the stories they share about you.”
― Shannon L. Alder

Biltmore-Estate-Sunflowers

A sea of sunflowers bloom in the sprawling fields of Biltmore Estate. I imagine Tina strolling past the radiant rows of upturned faces…her own spirit outshining their collective smiles. I imagine this is what her heaven must be like…the final glowing streaks of her amazing soul penetrating the sky with a brilliance that echoes a life well-lived…a good life. I imagine her heart is bursting with pride over a family she adores…watching them still, as their future takes shape. I imagine her witty banter as she beams down at us, her friends, while we honor her memory in a myriad of creative ways…our own hearts reaching across the great divide to say farväl min vän…farewell my friend…

  2. Hi Sam .. it is lovely – Tina would be in awe … probably reclining just listening to each note relishing the magical sounds … and I think the Tree of Life book is a great idea … I’ll be getting it when I find a link …
