For Elaine Marie England

April 13, 2011Comment

I’ve been a busy bee lately, getting together the next wave of rewards packages to send to project fuelers. In the process filling out thank-you notes and labeling packages, I found out that one of my most enthusiastic project fuelers had passed away last October (2010). Elaine Marie England, an old high school friend and fellow musician, passed away peacefully and unexpectedly right around the time we started production on Broken People. The album liner notes obviously don’t reflect my knowledge of her untimely passing at age 30, but I want to recognize her publicly now.

I didn’t know Elaine well, but we shared many great experiences together as a part of the Fairborn High School Marching Band. Thanks to social networking, we got back in touch (however briefly) recently, and Elaine—full of faith, enthusiasm, and creativity—generously supported the campaign to produce Broken People. Though it is not mentioned in the liner notes, I would like to dedicate “Field of Stones” to Elaine Marie England.
