“Thank You” Letters – February 18th, 2011
Another week has gone by and we are thankful to be able to do the work we do, providing joy and comfort to thousands of children through the original, personalized songs we write. It is only through your donations, your contributions (car donations, cash donations, worth of mouth) that we are able to keep on going and keep on writing these healing songs. We are asking for your increased support today due to continued hardship due to the economy’s impact on non-profits, especially arts non-profits. In our plea for your support, we bring you yet another letter from a family who has been helped through these songs.
I know it has been a while since we received this awesome CD, but like most families who have received one, life gets pretty hectic with hospital visits, etc. We want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for this wonderful gift of music. Carl Allocco, you did an awesome job on the words, music and vocals…..you’ve certainly made Songs of Love proud!
As soon as the CD arrived in the mail, I couldn’t wait to listen it. I put it in the player and as soon as the music started, I knew you captured my son perfectly with the type of music you chose for him. I cried the whole way through it! Once Seth came home from preschool, I told him that there was a surprise for him and I showed him the CD and played it for him. He couldn’t believe the song was about him! He danced and jumped around the whole time. After we played the song, I said to him “Wow, Seth. How does it feel to know someone took the time to write a song just for you?” He turned to me, and with a look of enormous gratitude, he started crying! For a 4 year old, he may not have known how to say it, but he definitely knew in his heart how to show how he was feeling. Your talent and thoughtfulness will never be forgotten.
We’ve had to make a copy of this CD just so that we don’t wear out the original! We took it to the Children’s Hospital so that everyone could hear it. It was great. You should have seen the tears rolling down all those nurses’ faces! It’s amazing how much one song can touch so many people. Seth continues to listen to the song daily. We take it with us when he has to be admitted so that he can be reminded of the special people in his life who cared enough to get him this song.
Thank you, again, for your wonderful work. I am attaching a couple of pictures of Seth with his new CD. Although words can’t describe how thankful we are, I’m sure his smiling face can say it all!
With lots of hugs,
The Guffey Family
Maurice, Kristi, Tabetha and Seth
Again, our sincerest thanks for your car donations and other charitable contributions. Have a lovely weekend!
