I really enjoy your Christian Hymn arrangements! You have a talent for making great arrangements out of hymns for guitar. Keep up the great work! Schramm, from California
Your visit here was also a blessing to many people who enjoyed sacred heavenly music. Once again, thank you for your gift of music, it is truly a gift from above. Mahalo (thank you) and God Bless. Bryan, from Hawaii
Thank you for presenting your music at St. Mary of the Angels. It has been two weeks since your visit to Orlando and, again today, I had comments from the choir, and from members of the congregation, about how wonderful your music was and how much it was enjoyed.
