Memoirs by James Milne 8 published on 2013/03/28 13:39:42 +0000 Tender Mercies is an grouping of instrumental music, an expression of the circumstances and events that have broken lives. It tells the tale of Crystal Lydiard, a name that is almost unknown, but represents a story that should never have happened. A story of despair, pain, and anguish. Crystal Lydiard was my girlfriend and later fiancé, and she died following her kidnapping in 2012. 'Memoirs' tells the story of the rage, shock and despair that hit me when I heard. Crystal had been receiving threats, first harm, and then death, and included details from her daily life. Whoever was behind them was trying to make her convince me to take part in a certain crime. I was nervous at first, and then my concern reached new highs, and I instructed her to inform the police, and not to go away until the agreed to protect her, or do something. She didn't. And that night she vanished. Memoirs covers the emotional wrath that was my response, and how I tore apart every clue, and spoke to everyone she had come into contact with, and basically interfered with the police investigation, which then turned into cooperation.
