I knew Greenwood attorney Don Long was a music fan. I’ve seen him at
different music events in and around Greenwood including Music on
Maxwell and the Greenwood Blues Cruise portion of the annual South
Carolina Festival of Discovery in Uptown Greenwood.
What I didn’t
know was that he was a fan of Barry Manilow. At least I think he is. He
probably didn’t know that about me, either. That is until I wrote my
column on Aug. 17 about a card and a note my mom included with a
Christmas present once many years ago. It explained how she loved me
because she was my mother, but liking me was something totally
different, and she didn’t have to do that. The note let me know she did
love me... and like me.
