    My last concert

    This afternoon I played the last concert of my life. My heart failure is far too severe to continue, along with my kidney failure. I am definately going to miss the concert bands.

    On the bright side, you can nostalgically look back on all the great concerts I'm sure you've been apart of in the past.

    Lou, ironically, I'm just briefly checking in as I am recovering from back surgery so I can feel somewhat empathetic. I'm truly sorry to hear of your problems and wish you well. I don't think I could send you a better wish than the following. I like this:
