The morning cold and raining,
dark before the dawn could come
How long in twilight waiting
longing for the rising sun

You're so amazing you shine like the stars
You're so amazing the beauty you are
You came blazing right into my heart
You're so amazing you are...
You are

(Select lyrics from "Amazing", by Janelle; the accompanying music to the photo/video montage we shared at Zachary's funeral)


A hand painted, watercolor work of art from a fellow bereaved mother, who couldn't have known how perfectly her vision for Zachary's painted name aligns with who he was (and thus, with the song we chose for his funeral).  Oh, how bright and brilliant it was to welcome him, in the cold of January, just eight months ago. 
Thank you, Typhaine.  We will treasure this one. 


  1. Beautiful song and beautiful art. Amazing Zachary x

  2. I got a painting from typhaine for my twins and I adore it. Yours is very beautiful.

  3. "how bright and brilliant it was to welcome him, in the cold of January"... beautiful. I am happy if these colors capture even just a fraction of the happiness you must have felt bringing Zachary into the world. You both are in my thoughts. xx
