He awoke to unexpected noise and since he is blind he did not initially realize that there were strangers in his home nor was he able to get a description of them or their vehicle. Luckily no harm came to my father but all 6 of his guitars were stolen. If you know my dad you know that those are among his most treasured possessions. The Austin police have been working to retain those involved and hopefully recover his guitars. However, being that there are no guarantees of recovery we are starting this Fundly to help him replace his guitars.
My dad is one of the most talented musicians I know and to see him without his instruments is truly disheartening. He’s had some of these guitars for at least 25 years and they have been his most steadfast companions. We can all take a lesson from the incredible attitude he has retained through this whole situation. Saying that we should look for the lesson that life is trying to show us and that we should be grateful that we are here and that possessions are just that, possessions.
I am extremely grateful that no harm has come to my dad but I am hopeful that we might be able to help him get some new instruments to tell new stories with. My dad is one of the most generous people I know and is always looking for ways he might help others. Please take the time to share this story and help him out. Many blessings.
