Glynn, this means so much. Since my mom died, the stiries have been flowing from my dad. I don't know of another man so completely in love with a woman (well, maybe Michael Kent).

Wonderful video Glynn. Thanks for sharing it. I passed it on to a family who has one daughter learning to play the piano and another the violin. I was impressed that the orchestra was all young people.

Ah Glynn, the video swept me up and filled my spirit with joy in the depths. I am more set to worship the God who started this creativity in his own words.
