Dear Lynyrd Skynyrd, I was in a car wreck on Feb1st of this year while I was 20 weeks pregnant while working. Since I was pregnant the doctors couldn't do a MRI or cat scan until after I had the baby. Since I've had the baby at age 28 I had to have back surgery and I can't even hold my baby for 4 weeks after the surgery from August 27th. It has been rough this year, I haven't been able to work since the accident. I lost my Escalade because of the car wreck and all the money we put into it is lost. I can't go home to see my family and see my dad who calls himself Lynyrd Skynyrd. He has followed you since you started and has been to over 50 shows. He even partied on your bus one New Year's Eve when you were staying at the same hotel and he has brought firewood to one of the members houses close to Mills River, NC. My husband and I have both served in the military. He served three tours in Iraq in the Marine Corps and I served one. The only thing that I am asking is that you come to our sons 6th Birthday Party, since we can't go home and see my dad for his birthday that he calls Lynyrd Skynyrd it would be nice if he could meet the real Lynyrd Skynyrd since we play it to him. We believe in raising him right by the good music. His birthday party is September 15th. I can message you all the information in a private message.

I hope you are able to make it, it's been rough not being able to see my dad and see him sing your music. Every year for Christmas I buy him your products for the past two years I have found priceless pictures of the groups and had them specially framed. This year I don't even know iPod I can afford to even get our son much because this car wreck has hurt us so much, we have maxed out all our loans because my husband has had to try to pay all bills and we never expected this to happen. The doctors took out two parts of my disc one was erupted and the other was bulging out and hitting a nerve. My son hasn't been able to go anywhere this year and usually we go home to mills river nc at least every 3 months. I wasn't even able to have a baby shower because I couldn't travel, I missed my best friends wedding and now my grandmothers lupus is getting worse, so I might not see her before she passes. Our family needs something to cheer us up and especially my soon to be 6 year old. Please come to his party he would love it, I was raised by listening to you and going to your concerts, when I was young my first concert was you and Boston playing together. You are a great Band and you believe in family and supporting the troops so I hope you can help, Thank you and God Bless!

I see that you have a concert on September 15th so I understand if you couldn't make that date his real birthday is September 12th and I'm going to eat lunch with him that day if you want to surprise him and join us with all of his classmates that would be great too. He's in Kindergarten.

My dad went to Artimus's house on top of a mountain to deliver his firewood with my sister Heather.
