Okay, it's been over a week. I've been thinking about what to write about our Night for Shari that we held last Friday. We had no idea how it would go and it surpassed expectations. At one point, I looked around the room. Matthew Barber was playing, hundreds of people were gathered, Shari was smiling...and I knew it had all worked out. The Yacht Club was a perfect venue. So many local businesses and individuals contributed items for the silent auction, it was overwhelming. Basically, it turned out to be a great night of family, friends, and live music.
Speaking of the music, Matthew Barber was outstanding...and I'm not just saying that because he sang some Leonard Cohen. We are now all official fans. We bought one of his CDs and it's become the staple in our car (when our four year old tyrant doesn't want to hear "Wild Rumpus" or "The Potty Song").
Shari and Jim even got up to speak at the end of the night. It must have been a hard thing to do and I was so proud of them.
Thanks to everyone who made this happen...
