Well, Christmas has passed now but the tensions about are still high. Please everyone, exercise patience when being served or waiting in a line. It's better to go to and from some destination without injury or injuring another. Love your fellow human being!

In this photo I was pretty happy, because my brother in law outta the blue decided to come to Florida and visit me for his birthday. My mother and he share a birthday. We had a great time playing guitar. I just got out of the hospital again just before he came, I am very glad he came. If I have not said it yet, Everyone Merry Christmas 2013!!!

I know that most people out there might think this is a ruse and do not pay much attention. I have not done my part in trying to reach the right crowd. My heart is working pretty hard to keep me going if anybody passes this on I will greatly appreciate it. Hey if you have any ideas on who this link needs to be sent to shoot me an email gjones621@gmail.com God Bless!

I've been a musician for 45 years. My passion is music. I believe it has kept me alive through all the trials and tribulations I've experienced throughout the years.
My life has always been an upward battle. In 1997, I contracted a severe case of Pancreatitis and I graciously won myself a helicopter ride to the nearest major hospital. That year also brought me the curse of Type 2 Diabetes. Both cases I could live with rather comfortably.
It wasn't until 1999 that my life took a turn for the worst. I experienced something I would come to know all too well. I was 44 and felt the gripping sensation in my left arm. I had no idea it would be my first of 7 life-threatening heart attacks.
Today, I am almost more metal than man. I was given 11 stents to open my clogged arteries. I underwent numerous surgeries to eradicate my heart disease. I even had my sternum cracked open to facilitate an invasive quadruple-bypass surgery in 2005, which proved faulty and collapsed. Yet my upward battle had not reached its peak.
The past 6 months have been a struggle. I've been admitted to the Veteran's Hospital 7 times and the debt I've obtained is pulling me under. The bank threatens the security of my car and my house. I've worked my hands to the bone providing for my 3 children. My youngest of which, goes off to college this fall.
However, my doctor will no longer allow me to work. He said I'll kill myself if I do. I must keep my family afloat while I still can. We all have been hit by these hard times and I believe everyone needs a helping hand sometimes. I would appreciate anything you can offer me, even if it's just kind words of motivation.


Sincerely,
A peaceful musician,
Gary Jones.

There is greatness about humanity. Standing by while someone falls doesn't work. When one falls, a little bit of everyone falls too. It is important to care for our fellow man.
