I didn’t think he was going to show up. He’d had a couple seizures that morning so I thought it would just be me, his son Graham, and my band in the living room, recording the song we wrote for him.

So I opened the front door and Graham came in with his two beautiful sisters.

And despite a hell of a morning, in came Loren.

He wasn’t sure how he was going to handle hearing the song, so he stayed off to the side when we started recording, back in the shadows. Between takes he moved to the couch and sat with his daughters, watching his son chase down a dream, and I felt like I was part of this special, sacred window of time that was slowly closing.

Not long ago, that window closed.

But another one opened.

Please read Hannah’s beautiful tribute that I’m sharing, watch the video, and if you can make it out this Friday night, we’ll be doing a show to honor Loren and playing the song in the video with Graham. Details are at http://www.rhfleet.org/events/rock-park.

RIP Loren Nancarrow.

Your family is doing you proud.
