Al: So sorry to hear about your mother. She was very special. Even when she made you practice the organ and you couldnt come out to play you knew in the long run she had your best interest at heart. She is now resting peacefully with your Dad. Do you think he ever found out about the longnecks we used to steal from his basement fridge? Love to you both and to your mom and dad. Joe and Linda
