To the staff and management! Thanks for the red wine!
Shout out to Leni B. Stevens. Thanks for the wine. Unbelievable that you came to see my show here in Canada after we first met in Bermuda. Wow! Mwahsssss 😀
SADLY. Life is sometimes complicated and full of uncertainties. We all have different views, opinions, beliefs and principles. But who’s to judge the men and women who served our country. Whatever happened… we are proud and honoured that Nick served our country in Afghanistan since he was 17 yrs old. He suffered from PTSD. Our heartfelt sympathies to his family and friends.
His father and step mom just watched my show last Friday in Oliver, BC. They were just having a blast dancing and singing. They were also very generous to bring me a gift – a bottle of wine after the show. Warm hugs to you Gary and Leni Stevens.
