About a week or so back I started a thread about a very good friend of mine who was looking for an amp for his son, who happens to be going into his 5th year. He wanted an amp where the two of them could play together. I received a PM from Wlewis (sorry man, people should know) stating that he had a Peavey Backstage that he would pay it forward with and donate to the young man. I got the amp today, and to say it is pristine is an understatement. I choked up when I saw it. Chase is going to love it, and I just got off the phone with his dad. We are meeting for lunch tomorrow and he gets it tomorrow night. I had to open it to see the amp, and so we are going to repackage it so Chase can have the fun of opening it. I am truly overwhelmed at the giving spirit that WL displayed. I didn't ask, he just gave. As if that is not enough, on the same thread I got an offer for a Spider 15 from Paratus. About 2years ago a friend of mine, who is now deceased, has a daughter who was barely hanging on. She had been self harming and one night she sold all her belongings and said goodbye to her family. So my friend who knows I work in the psych biz called and I found her and we talked for a while. I promised her that if she could get through this thing she was going through I would build her a guitar. When Paratus left his post I sent him a pm the next day saying all I had to do was assemble the guitar and I was wondering if I could buy the amp, Buy the amp. He too, said, "no way", I'll send it to you and you can give it to her. So now two people who don't know two people are going out of their way to make a total stranger a little more happy, a little more loved, and a little further away from before. I wiped away a couple of tears and wrote back. I just want to say that I am so amazed at the quality of the people that come on this site. I will never be able to repay this, and to be honest, I have learned a person shouldn't think about repayment. They should think about being blessed by fellow people on the planet, and be grateful to that person for showing the good that they are. So to all of you, especially Will and Mark, a huge hug and thanks. You all touched 25 people that you don't know, and through deep breaths Thanks.-gary BTW, I am making sure that Chase's dad takes credit for getting him the amp, and Char knows where hers is coming from.
