Artist's Description

This shot is bittersweet… Taken 10/9/10…

I was crying when I shot this and didn’t know what I would get…

We were attending a graveside service for a dear friend this day and it was one of the most emotional services I have ever witnessed…

FRED was a dear friend and member of many Bluegrass Bands… He loved music and that is what brought us together many years ago…

He was much to young to die of cancer, but I know he is in that Bluegrass Cafe in the sky…

After his Eulogy there in the Cemetery, we were all invited to sing with the guys playing their instruments all around the burial site…

It was his last wish, that two songs be sung… One he wrote himself and strangely it was a song about what it would be like to die… At that time he did not know he was ill… That was a tearjerker… tho I had been crying since I arrived and greeted his wife…

Next we were all invited to sing along with those fabulous guys playing their mandolins, fiddles, guitars etc… to “Will the Circle Be Unbroken”…

I sang with all the strength I could muster through my sobbing, as my husband held me…

And when I worked that nite, I Sang it again, and dedicated it to him… And I know, for a long time to come, that song will be one of the songs that I sing each time I work…

It was heartwarming to see the turnout of people there on that gorgeous warm fall day… and to hear them ALL singing was a very emotional thing… Then as the crowd was leaving the cemetery to head up to our local GRANGE to have a full fledged “Bluegrass Jam” (per Fred’s request also)… that is when I grabbed my camera and shot some things for Fred’s wife, and started looking around at the trees…

So this will forever be Fred’s Tree as it hangs over his grave… And I will forever remember the crowd of people standing there by his casket singing that song on a beautiful Fall Day….
