“Music is the great uniter. An incredible force. Something that people who differ on everything and anything else can have in common.” -- Sarah Dessen, Just Listen

“Music... will help dissolve your perplexities and purify your character and sensibilities, and in time of care and sorrow, will keep a fountain of joy alive in you.” -- Dietrich Bonhoeffer

“Music, once admitted to the soul, becomes a sort of spirit, and never dies.”

-- Edward Bulwer-Lytton

To add to the many happy memories we had in Florida, our second home, some of our friends gathered for the last time at our home (before it was sold a month after) and paid tribute to Elsa with a musical evening.  (Click any picture to enlarge).
