A few years ago, my wife Cindy and daughter, Chaia, saw Fourplay at Jazz Alley. I wasn’t able to make it for health reasons, but Cindy went, and Chaia took my place. They brought a gift for the guys, and you were so courteous and helpful; a real gentleman, and you made them feel so special. I will always be grateful for that!
This morning, in my morning devotions, I was listening to Fourplay, Live in Japan, and recalled that time, during Argentina, and many other times that I am grateful for in my life. It was a healing moment. I broke down, but it was a good breakdown! I wanted to pass that along to you. It’s amazing what music can do.
We were blessed to see you last August for our anniversary; a gift from our kids! It was superb!
I just wanted to pass this along to you. That is what music is all about, I believe…
See you next trip!
