Band practice tonight, & for once, I don't care how badly tuned my drums are.
Sorry to hear of your loss Andy.I too lost a dear friend in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.A long time Boy Scout leader,Staten Island Red Cross and Alzheimers Association Chairperson and a Registered nurse.
I too, am humbled by her willingness to constantly help others,even though she had a heart condition.She suffered a massive heart attack at 72 years of age,while volunteering as a nurse at a local hospital.
If in the end,I can think of myself as half the person she was,then I will have truly accomplished something in this life.
