Ms.LaBelle- My request is quite simple. I believe you know my brother, Naux. He lives in Providence RI and you and him played once together. I was very excited years ago when he told me that you and him had met, because I so love you and your music. But to get to the bottom; my son has been in the Army for 7 years this Nov and has served 2 terms in Iraq. Last year, he was diagnosed with a brain tumor which has made him lose some of his past memories. Although he is so like his uncle, he has recently been released by his doctor and his signed up again for Iraq because some of his brigade is there. He fills worthless here. He is a medic and will be leaving soon. He and his wife just married in Fort Lewis Washington. I am so proud of my son and my brother! But my request is that you send me a photo of yourself for him and his wife. She really adores you also. You can verify this letter by reading my website. www.mysoldierwear.com Thank you so much for your music and your recent tribute to another great man Luther Vondross teri burkman PO Box 2221 Oakdale, Ca 95361
