OVER-THE-TOP, LOVE - For a fallen friend of the SCENE, Tina Montana. Leaving behind four children, a massive groundswell of area friends, networks & businesses pulled together an incredible effort of arrangements in one short week which included her memorial service and a Celebration of Life Memorial Fundraiser at the Admiral's Club, Endeavor Marina. We heard music from former Blood Sweat & Tears member, Bill Tilman; solo acoustic performer Tim Thomas, and members of KAOS together with Al Stephenson & Andy Upchurch sharing the stage. Magician, Tommy Blaze, entertained the kids young and old alike while Al "Sky" Saylor was the event's live auctioneer. This event was simply too big for this column to properly mention all of the volunteers, supporters, & organizers -- To say it was massive is an understatement. So would be to say we were privileged to have been touched by Tina's presence in our short while. If you missed the event, it's not too late to support the cause (tinamontana.com). We will miss our friend. Peace...
