Yesterday a comment came in on an old post, and I wanted to draw attention to it.

Wayne Woodhams left this comment:

Wayne Hooper has been a close friend of mine for the past 30+ years. Several years ago he developed cancer, and it has been in remission for quite some time. I just found out that it is in full force again, and into the bone structure. Most likely Wayne has less than a year to live. Friends in the Ventura County area are planning a program honoring him in early November. If anyone wishes to pass on short messages, I’ll combine them in a tribute to him. It would be preferred that any words or messages be related to his music contributions, and not about his personal situation. He honored God throughout his career, and we wish to remember his work and efforts. You can email comments to Wayne Woodhams, Ventura, CA. at my email:
Many thanks.

Thanks for the information, Wayne.

Once again, here’s a link to a bunch of Hooper arrangements online.
