I am the mother of The Jolley Brothers and I feel like this note to you is long over due. I have watched my boys and their creativity with music for over ten years now. When they were younger they were always "practicing" with their band in the basement and it just went on from there. Chris eventually developed other interests but Matt was all about the music.
I remember a few months ago my son Matt's apartment caught on fire. He lost so much of his hard work in equipment, CDs, etc. Most would have given up. He came to live with me and the day after the fire I heard Matt up at 3a.m. I asked him if he was ok and he said "I'm not giving up mom. I'm going to the station and I am going to wait until Shaggy gets there. I am going to give him my cd...a bunch of them, and I am going to make a better life for my son".
The reason for this e-mail is to thank you Shaggy. You could have just shut the door in his face but you never did. You have been behind them since day one and I just want to tell you, as a mother, how much I appreciate you. Thank you for all you have done and all you continue to do. You really are a great man and my family won't ever forget that.
