Waters of Life
Something amazing happened the other day at the funeral service for Angie Tysseland in the stunning 3rd Avenue United Church. Family and friends remembered her in song and word where many people were so overcome that they couldn't sing and others poured out their hearts in soulful performances. Angies brother Scott spoke of his sister in a manner that made people laugh put them at ease and Nick Nostbakken gave his mother a send off worthy of speakers like Obama or Winston Churchill. Where does this strength come from? I know that Angie is a great composer but I always come away from performances of her music with a stronger belief that it is destined for greater audiences. We will miss you.
