Last night I went to a bluesgrass concert with ASM826 and Mrs. ASM826. It was a local band who played for fun and tips, but it was great fun. They ended with this, and it made me think of the visit with ASM826 and what he's been through in the last week.
He and Mrs. ASM826 have been surrounded by friends and family, and I'm glad I was able to be a part of that circle. They're solid people, and while this is a tragedy, I'm quite inspired by their resilience. I wonder if I would do as well in their place. Probably not.
But the circle remains. Times like this remind us that friends and family are everything. May that circle be unbroken.
