\"Live to Win\" in Atlanta

I will try to keep this as short as possible but still tell you exactly what your show meant to me last night in Atlanta. My sister and I bought our tickets in September and were going to drive over from North Alabama to see the show, but my sister suddenly canceled because of our mother having terminal cancer and having a bad day. My sister unselfishly gave me her ticket and I was able to get my husband to go with me. I can\'t ever love her or thank her enough for doing that for me.
In the next few weeks, my mother will be moving in with me permanently and all my time will be spent trying to make her last days as easy and happy for her as possible. I know we are no different from anyone else, everyone loses loved ones and we aren\'t any different, however, the very week that my Mom plans to move into my home is the year anniversary (Nov. 4, which is also my sister\'s birthday) of the loss of our father to cancer as well. So, I\'m sure you can see how hard this is for us to accept and deal with. The emotions are overwhelming sometimes.
Now, I\'ll get to the point. Paul, thanks to you and my sister, I was able to get away from home and relax a bit, enjoy time away and see the most amazing show I\'ve ever been to! I enjoyed hearing and watching you play and I made myself clear my mind so that I could have that special time and it not be clouded with worry about what our family is facing on the road ahead.Thank you so much Paul, for a dynamite show and for everything you\'ve given us fans through all the years and all that you are still giving to us...and for making me forget for a couple of hours. Come back to Atlanta the next time too!
