Words cannot express the gratitude we have as a family at the outpouring of love, support and prayers since our father's passing last Friday. Many have inquired about flowers and/or donations in his memory. After much thought, the family has chosen two charities that would have been close to Dad's heart:

VH1 Save the Music Foundation: a non-profit organization dedicated to restoring instrumental music education in America's public schools, and raising awareness about the importance of music as part of each child's complete education. To date, the Foundation has provided more than $47 million in new musical instruments to 1,750 public schools in more than 100 cities around the country, impacting the lives of over 1.6 million children.

St. Jude Children's Research Foundation: St. Jude is the only pediatric cancer research center where families never pay for treatment not covered by insurance. No child is ever denied treatment because of the family’s inability to pay.

Thank you again for all of your love!
