Artist's Statement: My uncle never played the piano. In fact, no one in his family plays the piano. But he always talked of serenading the love of his life with a love song he would write especially for her and play on a baby grand piano. That was his dream that he shared with us with a smile. After her funeral service last year, he sat at the church's piano and played...an aimless song, one void of tune or rationality, one born from the depths of his Alzheimer's and his love for her. e had fulfilled his dream at last.
Peggy Trickler

Dedication: For my uncle who carried a tune and his love, until his Alzheimer's gave him the courage to express both on a piano.
