Lucille Bailey Renfroe (Lou)

We lost Jan's mom last week. She died last Wednesday, July 7th. She was 84. Lou was the kindest, wisest, finest person you could ever hope to meet. I was so very proud to be a member of her family. Our sweet girl will be forever missed.

Lucille is described so perfectly in Proverbs 31:

Who can find a virtuous woman?
For her price is far above rubies.
The heart of her husband doth safely trust her,
So that he shall have no need of spoil.
She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.
She is like the merchants' ships;
She bringeth her food from afar.
Strength and honour are her clothing;
And she shall rejoice in time to come.
She openeth her mouth with wisdom;
And in her tongue is the law of kindness.
She looketh well to the ways of her household,
And eateth not the bread of idleness.
Her children rise up, and call her blessed;
Her husband also, and he praiseth her.
Many daughters have done virtuously.
But thou excellest them all.

Young Lucille Renfroe

Music on Hold

Take a look at the beautiful cover for Timeless II. Matt Strieby of New Leaf Design has once more amazed me with his artistry.

On the music side, not much to tell this week. Jan and I are spending most of the time in the waiting room outside intensive care. In fact, I am writing these lines from the hospital, and I haven't been to the studio at all today. Today is 9 days after Lou's bypass surgery, and she is still in ICU on the ventilator. I had really hoped they would take that horrible tube out of her throat today, but it looks like it may be tomorrow or even the day after. She is MISERABLE.

Jan and I were supposed to leave yesterday for a 10-day vacation, but obviously this not going to happen.

Timeless II has to be released by September 1st to be eligible for Grammy nomination. God willing, I will meet that deadline. The piano tracks are all finished, just have to finish the orchestration, mix, and master. Now that the cover is done, I'll get the individual songs to iTunes as soon as each one is finished.

I'll be performing in concert in Memphis on September 25th, more details later. I'm also working on dates in Little Rock and Jackson, MS.
