It's hard to believe he's really gone even though he was sick. He was the oldest and more like a father since he had kids older than me. When I was a teen, I told him I wanted to play the piano. I came home from school one day and there it was. The most beautiful used black baby grand taking up half the living room. I never learned to play it well and I'm not sure who loved that piano more - him or me. Then he bought himself a fiddle which he finally traded for an acoustic guitar when the family threatened mutiny. smile He was quite a character.

I will miss him.

Thank you for your thoughts and prayers for me and my family.

Josie, I am so sorry for your loss. I do have to agree, he seems like the kind of guy you would love to be around!

Try to focus on the great times, and celebrate the time you had with him. He lives on in you that way.

I wish I had something to say that helps, but that doesn't seem to be one of the powers bestowed on words. Based on what you said, it sounds like he was a brother who put his money where his heart is. Given the price of baby grand pianos, he must have really loved his little sister. His actions said far more than words.

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

I will add him to my prayers tonight. Sadly, as I get older, the list gets longer.

I will continue to post in the songwriters forum but will be keeping my opinions to myself as far as the off topic forum goes.
