My wife Diana and I would like to thank you for being a part of our lives and writing the song “Simple Man” (Ronnie VanZant-Gary Rossington) Our son passed away on February 10, 2011. Diana sang “Simple Man” to him on the day he was born, October 28, 1987 and again on the day of his passing. No words ring truer than the words of “Simple Man” for our son Chad. In the short time (23 yrs) he was with us he grew up to be just that, a simple man. Past, Present and Future, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Simple Man will be in our hearts and memories of Chad. Once again thank you and ROCK ON !!!

A dream is about to come true, My Wife and I are going to be able to see Lynyrd Skynyrd for the first time in concert in September. This is something I have wanted to do for her and now it is going to become reality, Thank You for coming to Nebraska.

As you know you are not alone, I have also lost a son many years ago and just over 4 years ago the gift was given again, I say gift because he wasn't planned or expected, has a brain full of tumors and has taught us all about what "special needs" means.
Having seen Lynyrd Skynyrd several times over the years, my wife surprised me with tickets to see them with Kansas in KC on August 30th. It was an over the top night, both bands are so good on stage we felt they were there just for us. The music they put out for us to listen to helps us through bad times, celebrate the the good or just turn it up!
