There is no way I could have embarked on the Hymns for Alzheimer’s project without the generous support and love of dozens of people.
To all of you who contributed to the GoFundMe fundraiser: My sincere and humble thanks. It is a privilege to partner with you to produce these hymns. I trust and pray you are blessed by being such a blessing to others.
To my incredible vocalists Charlotte Warren Sass, Dave Arns, Bethany Donnalley, Will, Cheryl Jackson, Curtis Reed, and Dr. Michael Williams: You have my profound thanks and inexpressible admiration for your talents and time.
To our incomparable pianist, Richard Capp: Richard, I honestly don’t know what we would have done without you. Your enthusiastic participation and absolutely spot-on, ego-free keyboard skills lifted this project to the heavens. Thanks, too, for voluntarily tuning the studio piano before each and every recording session.
To our amazing, miracle-working, and ever-patient sound engineer, Kyle Smith: Kyle, as I’ve said many times, you’re a magician. Just don’t forget to eat dinner or I’ll be sad.
To Coupe Studios for charging a low “charity rate” for this project: thank you! Your studio is a delightful place to work. I wish I understood all the dials and buttons, but that will have to wait for another time 🙂
To my wonderful husband, Dave, my champion, encourager, accountant, business manager, sounding board, wise counselor, and biggest cheerleader: I love you.
And to the many, many elders who bless me every day with their sweet souls that transcend memory: You are my inspiration and my joy, and I dedicate this entire project to you. May these hymns bless you and your families.
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord! Let the Earth hear his voice;
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord! Let the people rejoice!
O come to the Father through Jesus the Son,
And give him the glory: Great things he hath done!
Peace be with you,
