  1. Admire you – respect your honor to human story and your talent in telling that story. I now live in Friendswood Tx…Friendship Haven assisted living…kept my dubious brain function, but the rest is gathering strength, and working to see the folks on stage – maybe be one – again ! I know you will use your mighty skill to entrance, romance, chill, thrill and pass on the poetry & power ❤️
