"If you have time to complain, that means you aren't working hard enough."
Ugh! He was right. Again.
But that was his day job. His real love was for music. He loved to play guitar and sing. He would tell me about his gigs “ I would do it for free, but don’t tell them that.” He loved the blues community and tried to support it by donating his time to KNON, playing benefits and mentoring musicians. He tried to help others who were having a hard time and wouldn’t write anyone off, because he remembered a time in his life when he had made some poor life choices, and recalled those who hadn’t given up on him. He believed that given the chance, people could turn their lives around, because he had.
