This is the life of my dear friend, Dr. Andrew David Bagby, as I remember it - in music.
The main theme is made up of two-note phrases, meant to echo the two syllables of his name. It is repeated three times, in three different instrumentations:
As a boy, he is a playful clarinet. As a young man, he is a stylish tenor saxophone. As a Doctor, he has the regality of full brass.
Between the young man and the Doctor, there is a break for a love theme which I will simply call "Heather".
Finally, the angels sing to embrace his soul.
I hope this music reminds you of his spirit, his laugh, his swagger and his full heart – and keeps those things alive every time it is played.
