I thought from time to time, I'd share emails and letters from people.

I was at a friend's house today and saw the picture of him with you and Ken Cook and others from the Labor Day MDA telethon and as I stood there looking at that picture (my friend is Michael Johnson, son of Cheryl and Ernie Johnson), it made a light go off for me. I thought about how busy you are with two babies at home, a wife, a busy busy job and yet not only do you find the time for the March for leukemia, you volunteer for the Labor Day MDA telethon which is long hours and hard work. And there are so many other things you are involved in that I am sure never get mentioned. You knew my cousin, Vickie Clark who passed away in July, and she spoke so highly of you and what a big heart you had.
I have been searching for something to do, some way to give back, and I have done some work with different organizations but it seems every time I go all they want is a glorified office clerk to do filing, stuff envelopes or call and ask for money and I felt there was more I could do than that. So instead of making excuses, I looked at you, at Ken Cook, at my buddy Michael who I have watched go from walking to being completely wheel chair bound and decided to get off my duff and make a difference. If you can find time to do these good things then surly someone like me can too. I have 3 days a week I don't work and I know there is an organization out there somewhere who can utilize me. I am beginning the search today. You touch my heart in so many ways and I kept thinking about how you have two beautiful babies, healthy and strong and yet you want to make a difference, you aren't sitting back waiting till something happens, you want to Nip it in the bud now. Thank you for all you do, thank you for the joy you bring to others without even knowing it and thank you for opening my eyes. If we want to give back and help we can find a way, it isn't all about money it is about the giving of one's self. I am so proud to say you are my friend, even though I have met you once years ago, you are friend to so many who listen to you every day. God bless you dear hard working man.
Some of you know that one of my resolutions for 2005 was to work
on a master of arts degree.
I listen to you and Dallas everymorning. I just had to write and tell that I too have gone back to school at the age of 52. Sometimes I feel like I am the grandmother, the students are so young. I am enjoying it. I am going for my associates degree in Accounting. It is so good to hear about someone else going back to school. Good luck in all your endeavors and just keep me laughing on the way to school everymorning.
Thank you for giving me the motivation to go back.
Love all of ya!
Rhubarb (and Dallas),
Okay, let me begin by saying I never really was a country music fan. Sorry, but it's true. I'm from Alabama (20 miles south of Birmingham) and, even though I grew up on country music, I guess it just took me a while to truly appreciate it. Maybe I just had to learn some "life lessons" before I could understand how profound it really is! Anyway, my family got transferred to Marietta a few years back, and I started looking for a radio station. Oh, I tried all of them, but I kept coming back to you. I'm one of those people who turn the station whenever the DJ starts talking, but I wouldn't care if you guys never played another song! I mean it. I can't wait to hear what you and Dallas are going to say next. You're honest (even when it's not politically correct), but you're also kind and genuine. Just down-home folks that you feel like you've known all your life. When you talk about growing up in Tallapoosa and of your Mother and Grandmother, it takes me back home to Alabaster, Alabama, and that puts a smile on my face all the way to work! You know, there are people in our lives who take away and people who add something. Well, you guys add something special to my life every day. You remind me of what's important in life and how to treat people like I want to be treated. Simple values. What country music is all about, right? Thanks for the reminder! Love you guys!!
I just wanted to let you know that I enjoy listening to you every morning. I guess the one thing that I like about you more than anything else is that you come across as a real person, no pretending. I think that your loving attitude towards the Atlanta community is absolutely incredible. Thanks for all that you and it is great to hear about your family. Keep up the good work.
Not too often, people forget to praise those
that make a difference in their
Just wanted to say congratulations and thanks for a great evening of entertainment and fun. Charlie is a National Treasure. God has blessed the L&L Society with you and all the great folks that participate in and plan this awesome event. The audience was filled with wonderful people eager make a contribution and they're all there because of you. Know plans are already underway for next year because you set the bar so high. Hopefully one day we'll just be out playing golf because these blood diseases have been cured. Short of that, we'll be there each year with you trying to make a difference.
Jeff, Kathy, and Alexis Koch
