Tonight I would like to thank a woman I have never met. I have never actually even seen a picture of her, but today I played the piano and sang at her funeral. She was a woman who was very active in her community, who loved hosting people in her home over a cup of coffee and who enjoyed canning everything and anything. Whenever I play for events like these, I never go into them expecting anything in return, and today those expectations were blown away. I was paid very generously for one hour of 'work' and very little preparation. I have been slowly saving for something special, a Nook Color, and today, Ruby helped me finish off my fund and contribute a little towards my upcoming CO trip, too, I think! Wow! Thanks, Ruby!
