Fans, family, and friends,
I have spent the last few days in Pennsylvania with my family supporting my mother and grandmother. My grandfather Donald Heil passed away this week just days after his 85th birthday. The service will be on Monday, and Catherine and I will return to Canada on Tuesday.
To those of you who are looking forward to Thursday's show at the Media Club, I want to reassure you that the show will go on. I'll be there from start to finish, and we have an amazing night of music for you.
I spent all my spare time this week - that is, when I wasn't in the hospital or sleeping (and a lot of time that I should have been sleeping) - recording a song that represents what Pop-pop meant to me. After the service is over I'll try to get that up on the site to stream so that you all can hear it.
My grandfather was a great man, who provided his family with a beautiful life, and saw not only his daughters but all of his grandchildren achieve higher education and find love and prosperity. He got to know two great-grandchildren and was the head of his household.
