I miss my Daddy
and his infectious laughter

I wish he could have heard my sons play their music, watched them building their projects, been here to get to know the amazing people they have become.

Band in Middle School

Last concert at the Middle School tonight
I am so proud of my son and all his friends who have come so far with their music!
They have learned to practice hard both alone and together, to listen to each other and blend their sounds, to accurately sight read music, to impart feeling and emotion through their instruments, to stand up and perform in front of audiences - all of these incredible life skills that they will carry with them forever!
I look forward to listening to you tonight and celebrating the beautiful music you create!
