I want to thank you for the two years of private lessons you gave me and for the times in between the periods at the old barn, you let me play a song or two. It was a pleasure working with you at Taylor's Music House and Ludwig/ Aolian in the early 1980s. You are my musical hero. May God Keep you close, and may you keep Jack Buck and Harry Cary entertained along with all the sport stars. God bless the Hays family!
