Many of you have known me for a long time and therefore many of you will also know my amazing adopted Grandparents, Art & Verla Ritchie who have been in my life since I was 11 years old. Verla has been sick and I am sad to tell you that she passed away last night. She was truly a beautiful light in this world. A one of a kind. I spoke to Grandpa yesterday before she passed and he told me that God has been good to them and their life has been great. I coincidentally wrote a song yesterday with Phil Barton before I spoke to Grandpa called “Life’s Been Good To Me.” I know that some of you are going to want to know when her memorial service will be and when I know I will let you know. She is in God’s presence now.
