Album Notes
Liner notes – On the Other Side

Hymn for Peace
A prayer for peace in our nation.

From This Day
This song was written for my oldest son, Michael and precious daughter-in-love, Kristin to celebrate their wedding. Theirs is truly a match made in heaven. May God bless them with many years of living and loving.

Echoes of Time
My musical representation of the moments in life and the memories that play on the strings of my heart.

Home with Annie
In memory of my cousin, Bob Shingleton and his beloved wife, Annie, who have been reunited on the other side. He showed me the hands, the feet and the heart of Jesus when I needed so badly to see those things. Thank you, Bob!!!

Kessia’s Waltz
Written for my precious granddaughter, Kessia who waltzes through life to her own tune and is an absolute blessing to all she meets. Love you to the moon and back, sweet girl!

Puddle Dance
Written as I watched my friend, Tim teach his granddaughter, Easton (not yet two) to jump in puddles after a rainstorm. The absolute, innocent joy on both of their faces was priceless and inspiring.

Flight of a Princess
I wrote this song when I learned that my youngest child and only daughter would be leaving to live one of her dreams as a real-life princess at a theme park in Florida. Fly high, sweet girl and never stop chasing your dreams!!!!

Lullaby from Afar
When my children were small, I so enjoyed rocking them and singing lullabies. Some mothers never get to hold and rock their babies. In their hearts, they sing their lullabies from afar. This piece is dedicated to the blessing and the all-too-brief lives of Juniper Lark Jones and Eleanor Elise (Ellie) and August Emory (Gus) Palmer-Bowyer.

Just Us
This is an improvisation that I wrote for my husband, Buddy as a Valentine’s Day gift.

Midnight Tide
Many times, late at night, the joys and sorrows of life play through the music of my mind like the ebb and flow of the ocean’s tide. Life is a blessed journey.

Sienna’s Dream
My precious granddaughter, Sienna wrote the theme for this piece while sitting at my piano during their visit for Thanksgiving. She was 9 at the time. Love you to the moon and back, sweet girl. Let’s write more music together!!!

Ripples on the Water
Everything we do or say is like a pebble thrown into a lake. It causes ripples in the smooth surface of the water that keep going until they reach the other shore.

Remnant Tears
This piece is dedicated to the memory of my dear friend, Ruth Buffey. When someone we love is gone from our lives, we go through the initial grieving. But from that point on, there will always be tears of joy and sorrow as we remember them.

Heal Me
Dedicated to my brother, Bill Edwards. Bill is a friend that became family. He challenged me to write this piece as I was recovering from meningitis. It is a prayer for healing.

Beloved Promise
This piece is dedicated to my son, David. His name means “beloved" and his birth was the fulfilment of a promise from God. The music reminds me of his steadfastness. He is a man after the very heart of God, which thrills this mother’s heart!

Be Still My Soul
In memory of my mother, Trellis McIntyre and in honor of my precious friend, Rhonda Hanson, it is a medley of their favorite hymn, “It Is Well with My Soul” and one of my favorites, "Be Still My Soul."

On the Other Side
As my mother peacefully waited for her home-going in hospice, she and I sat talking in the wee hours one morning. I said, “Mama, when I get to heaven, other than Jesus, yours is the first face I want to see.” She patted my face and said, “Don’t worry, baby. I’ll see you on the other side.” This is the piece I wrote as I processed my grief on my piano.

Acknowlegements for “On the Other Side”

This album is dedicated to the memory of my precious mother, Trellis (Conner) McIntyre, who brought music into our home, encouraged me in all my musical endeavors and prayed for me incessantly. She graced us with her presence, her strength and her faith for 87 wonderful years and went home to be with Jesus and her loved ones the day after Thanksgiving 2014. Thank you, Mama. I love you and I'll see you On the Other Side!

Many thanks to:

Matt Strieby for your creativity.

My family and friends, especially Buddy Oakes, Donovan Johnson and Bill and Pam Edwards for your love, prayers and everlasting support.

Jesus Christ, my Lord and Savior and the sustainer of my life.
