                                                  COMPOSED BY ALAN PETTIFER.




Every song has a story behind it "What is the story behind the Last Flower? Why was the song composed? On this page you can read the story
behind the song, about the composer and the DVD.
As the founder of Mothers against knives and the "Its your Life" awareness team I approached Alan Pettifer and asked him if he would consider
composing a song for the victims of crime.
I had heard his song "FOREVER YOUNG" a song for WOOTON BASSETT which for the past year has been raising money for the charity AFGAN HEROES.
Alan agreed to compose a song for victims, the song relates to the loss of a life through crime, however it is composed to relate to any loss
of life.
                         WHY I asked Alan.
When you lose a life through crime no one knows what a victim suffers the feelings and the pain. Its very hard for people who have not suffered this kind of loss to understand, the words of Alans song portray in a sense some of these feelings which relate to anyone who has lost a loved one through crime. As a mother of a victim the song has a very special meaning to me. Also to be part of a song composed for victims everywhere who have suffered a loss, a song that will hit the hearts of people everywhere and anyone who has experienced losing a loved one. For myself it will always have a deeper meaning which I hold in my heart, eternal thanks to Alan for composing an emotional and beautiful song.

The song written from the view point of the victims loved ones is sung by AL SASK (aka Alan Pettifer) and features the amazing vocals of Julesbury Hill and was recorded in the studios of Wiltshire Media Consultants Ltd, nr Devizes, Wiltshire.
