Thanksgiving Day, the gentleman visits the young lady with his 3 sons he had just got custody of. He knew the young lady had just lost 3 of her children to a house fire caused by lighting where her children passed away. As he was being wheeled out of her house he stopped his sons and told them to wait a minute. He told her, "Never, Never give up on your music. No matter what, you can't stop. God has plans for you and your music. Promise me! " She promised him and he left. Not long after he lost his battle with cancer and went home to be with God and the angels.
