THE STORY:

This had to have been the most eye opening experience I have had in a very long time...I feel for those of you that missed this wonderful evening of old friends and teachers...and down-home New Orleans music.

Ultimately, I was humbled by the outpouring of genuine care for a man that inspired so many of us to do better and try harder. He is not only a teacher, but a friend, mentor and touchstone. Even now, he managed to put his own trials aside and make each and every person that shared this night with him feel like they were the only person in the room. That is true heroism.

So, I have been inspired by his modesty and selflessness, once again, and decided to either raise the money or ferociously badger a company that would be willing to donate a new electric wheelchair to this man. The one he has is showing it’s wear and I believe he deserves to have no worries in the remaining days of his life. They are VERY expensive and since he was forced into early retirement due to ALS I am certain he could not afford to get an updated device.

In saying all of that… I am not sure what could be done to help, but I implore you to look deep inside and lend a hand. This man has got to be the most deserving person I have ever had the honor of knowing. Simply getting this wheelchair for him would be my way of saying “Thank you”, although it isn’t nearly thanks enough.

Sincerely,
