PIANO: The gift of music

Print Article

When one feels the breeze of the off shore wind one runs to the wind. I was fortunate recently to have a person donate to my dementia facility a lovely Kimball piano. The piano will facilitate many people in our care facility that will ensure that many of these life giving skills will go on and that the people will have a quality of life as this disease leads them astray from what they used to know.

I feel fortunate that mankind sees needs and rushes to embrace the less fortunate. I am so thankful for the donation and I wish I could accommodate the people who so liberally gave, but alas, if they see this letter they shall know that it is with great humility that my facility, Pacifica is so grateful for your kindness to many.

Life is so great even when the winds of change are upon many.
