Lament for Liam

Composed by John Bottomley

Lament for Liam

This tune was composed for a friend and former student of the composer, and for her family.  Their son, Liam, passed away the day before he was born; a devastating loss, but through this personal loss and in memory of Liam, special needs young people are rewarded yearly for their educational endeavors.  To learn more about this fund, log onto
