The first time I met Sharon Husted and her Dad Ed, I was amazed. Her Dad was in his mid 80s, was still a working musician, and had a quick wit and a great sense of humor.

I didn't even know that Sharon's Dad had suffered a series of strokes in recent days. This is quite a blow for anyone, especially a man who has never had to depend on anyone to get where he wants and do what he wants. Sharon has been back and forth from the hospital to her Dad's house trying to take care of things. Over the weekend, Sharon went to her Dad's to get some rest and woke up with the house on fire. Thankfully she wasn't hurt, but it's going to be a long haul for this family.
