Bram’s ADMIN request-text and my answer in audio

Hello Freesounders,
It happens very infrequently that I post requests. However, I have an extraordinary sad reason to do so today. I don't want to go into detail in this public forum, but someone incredibly important and incredibly young in my life and my wife's just passed away.
I am thus looking for an extra long recording of a peaceful "forrest ambience" to play during the good-bye ceremony. Something with some birds and perhaps some wind through the leaves, ....
Currently the ceremony is planned for April 6th so I would need this before then. I know I can look through Freesound, but I would like something specifically recorded with this in mind, something we will be able to listen to later as well, remembering this important and sad time in our life...
yours in grief,
- bram & family
