A note from Gabe’s Mom:
What a joy to find your card in the mail today! Thank you
for your thoughtful encouragement.
I have been waiting for Hendersonville Symphony to release the news,
to send you guys. They had it posted on their website today.
The Lord has blessed us in many ways, and we consider
you and the Case Brothers staff among those blessings.
Thank you for your patience with us as we sought the right piano
for Gabe. I only wished his dad and I had understood how practicing
on a quality piano could make such a difference.
We can see and hear now, just how special his Steinway is.
Thank you all at Case Brothers for helping Gabe realize his potential.
